Abstract

Community health services (CHS) consist of a wide range of services including district nursing, health visiting, physiotherapy and rehabilitation services, family planning, and chiropody. CHS in England have been subject to many organisational changes in the past three decades. These services are particularly important in the current constrained financial situation of the NHS, as the intention is to rationalise hospital provision and increase the amount of care provided in the community. Clearly, CHS need to be well organised in order to increase their contribution to caring for people at home. This paper reports recent research about organisational changes for CHS.
