Central Lancashire PCT

Volume 451: debated on Wednesday 1 November 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what plans her Department has to deliver more health services in the community in the Central Lancashire Primary Care Trust area. (96888)

Central Lancashire Primary Care Trust (PCT), in line with national policy, is reviewing a number of patient pathways with a view to delivering care safely and to a high standard within a community setting. Work has already commenced on areas such as dermatology and musculoskeletal services and information to date shows an average of 43 per cent. of patients being treated in a community setting. The PCT will build on this work, and over the coming months share the next stage of this development with patients and clinicians alike.
