Researcher Alexander Hitchcock appeared on BBC Radio Berkshire to discuss Slough Clinical Commissioning Group’s initiative to reform walk-in services for patients

During the interview, he highlighted the fact that this initiative could have a number of benefits for patients. These include improving access to general practice, receiving more personalised and bespoke care, and stopping people being admitted to hospital unnecessarily. It could also prove to be a more cost-effective measure, at a time when the NHS needs to find £22 billion of efficiency savings by 2020.

*Changing the way care is delivered can reduce costs and improve quality.”
