The interface between primary and secondary care.


The interface between primary and secondary care in the UK has been affected by a number of recent changes, particularly in provision of out-of-hours care and advice. This paper reviews some current measures of healthcare quality and argues that many do not adequately measure contributions in primary care. To overcome these deficiencies the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) has published guidelines on issues of quality in primary care.
