LINKSLEARNING – hot off the press
Fresh on the main Moore Adamson Craig site, is the first article under our LINKsLEARNING banner – how we set about building the Wandworth LINk website from scratch and at speed. Check it out here: http://www.mooreadamsoncraig.co.uk/LINks.php and if you have any questions about what we did, contact me (email info here).
Bradford in the lead
We report on new developments in Bradford where the first of 152 GP-led Health Centres has opened. Andrew Craig points that there is a big window of opportunity for social enterprises to be set up with the latest news that Ministers have agreed a 3-year guarantee of uncontested contracts for new social enterprises in the health sector. So future social entrepreneurs need to get in quick before the arrival in this market (the current term) of what Andrew characterises as “aggressive super Foundation Trusts moving into primary and community health care“. http://www.publicinvolvement.org.uk/2008/12/do-the-citizens-of-bradford-know-something-about-primary-care-that-londoners-dont/
Also in the lead is the Motor Neurone Disease Association. The Year of Care commissing tool features as case history No 1 in the National Audit Office’s report on End of Life Care (http://www.nao.org.uk/pn/07-08/07081043.htm ) as an example of best practice in the area.
The Public Accounts Committee is taking evidence on the report on 17th December 2008.
After that they and all the rest of us can perhaps wind down for a decent holiday and a Happy Christmas – something we wish for all our readers.
