Issues around continuity of care run through health and social policy. A programme of research studies, begun in 2001, explored what continuity of care actually means:
* what service users and carers want in the way of continuity of care
* what influences their experience
* any outcomes produced.

A report in 2007 reviewed interim outputs from the programme, when some of the research studies were still running. Our study builds on, extends and completes that review.
