New Booklet Outlines Changes in Primary Care

A new booklet highlighting the myriad changes in primary care and community practice has been published by the Community Practitioners’ and Health Visitors’ Association.

The New Primary and Community Care Agenda. The Development of Clinical and Public Health Practice – 2001 and Beyond has been written by the CPHVA’s nurse advisor, Thelma Sackman, and is aimed at managers and community practitioners.

Writing in the foreword, the CPHVA’s director, Jackie Carnell said: ‘There are challenges and opportunities for all community staff which will lead to new initiatives being developed and nurse-led services increasing.’

It is essential that all community staff are involved in these changes and are able to develop new skills and expertise to meet the health needs of the populations they work with.’

The publication can be obtained from the CPHVA (tel: 020 7939 7045). Price £3 for members/£5 non-members.
