Fairness in primary care procurement measures of under-doctoredness: sensitivity analysis and trends

A. Hole, G. Marini, .M. Goddard, H. Gravelle

Research output: Working paper


The White Paper Our Health, Our Care, Our Say noted concerns about geographical equity of access to GPs (Department of Health, 2006, page 63), listed the 30 PCTs with the lowest number of GPs per head of need adjusted population, and set out policy initiatives to attract additional providers of general practice services to these PCTs.
We were asked to evaluate the impact of these policies on the bottom 30 PCTs and will report in Autumn 2010. In this report we consider a number of related measurement issues which are relevant for consideration of policy on equality of access to general practice.
