EDICS and Practice Based Commissioning–extending the role of the GPSI


Epsom Downs Integrated Care Services (EDICS) is one of the first and largest groups in the UK in which GPs have used SPMS (specialist personal medical services) to contract for out-patient care for their patients. One of the tasks has been to develop the role of the GPSI at the gateway between primary, intermediate and secondary care. This article discusses how EDICS GPSIs are not simply service providers, but how they take on an enhanced role in demand management, service development, and continuing medical education.
