Primary Care Drug and Alcohol Treatment: Commissioning and Provision Against a Backdrop of Localism Dr Linda Harris, Kate Halliday
The Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) and Substance Misuse Management in General Practice (SMMGP) issued a joint paper considering the future impact of the changing commissioning environment on primary care drug and alcohol treatment. The paper explores how primary care can proactively contribute to the rapidly developing recovery systems of care, by building on its strong legacy of safe, holistic and clinically effective care closer to home. It also includes checklists on how to evidence that services are working towards these themes. The paper was presented at the conference.
