Abstract

In order to understand how the Right Care Atlas series is being used within PCT clusters and CCGs to inform planning activities, and identify levers and barriers to use, Right Care has been working with Professor Gwyn Bevan’s team at the London School of Economics. The LSE has been commissioned to conduct a survey of PCTs and we hope that the results of this research will be published in an academic journal in due course. A report has been provided to the National Director of QIPP, Jim Easton. This work will inform further Atlas production and promotion of their use by PCTs and CCGs. The work has been conducted by Laura Schang and supervised by Dr Alec Morton. The research approach included telephone interviews with a sample of PCT managers and in-depth case studies of PCTs use of the Atlases. This Right Care Casebook brings together the Case Studies and is available as a downloadable PDF on the Right Care website: http://www.rightcare.nhs.uk/atlas
