Bedfordshire and Luton - strong PBC pockets

Progress across the counties is variable with some good projects in place, but warning signs ahead.

Progress across the counties is variable with some good projects in place, but warning signs ahead.

Chief executive of Beds and Herts LMC Dr Peter Graves says there are good examples of PBC bringing about change in Bedfordshire.

One cluster in Luton is focusing on children's health and another in Dunstable is looking to move into a purpose-built centre owned by the GP cluster that will house five practices and a range of services provided through PBC.

Dr Graves says: ‘The management of Luton PCT changed at the end of last year and is much more supportive.'

But he warns that too many ‘must-dos' coming down from the SHA in future months could stifle PBC innovation.
