Abstract

The National Primary Care Development Team (NPDT) is spreading the Unique Care approach to case management across the country, and this article presents a case study of how Brent is successfully implementing Unique Care through the Care Co‐ordination Service. It aims to outline key steps in the development of the service, moving from the initial vision, to pilot phase and on to mainstreaming of the service. The collaborative methodology was adopted. The evidence suggests impressive reductions in service use, alongside an increase in quality of life and improved perception of health and social care services among older people who have had contact with the team.
