Race Equality Foundation (REF) - 
The term ‘personalisation’ means different things to different people but, as used both by the previous Labour and current Coalition governments, it is about tailoring services to people’s own circumstances and giving them more control over the amount and type of support they receive.

Out-of-hours GP services in England

NHS Evidence - health management - Fri, 11/07/2014 - 10:18

National Audit Office -
Although some parts of the NHS in England are achieving value for money for their spending on out-of-hours GP services, this is not the case across the board, according to this report. It finds that the number of cases handled by out-of-hours GP services has fallen, from an estimated 8.6 million in 2007-08 to 5.8 million in 2013-14. The report also estimates that out-of-hours GP services also cost less now, in real terms, than they did in 2005-06, but NHS 111 makes cost comparisons difficult.
