Primary Care in Europe

This new study gives a wide-ranging overview of primary care in 31 European countries. Topics covered include governance, financing, workforce aspects and the breadth of the provision of services. As well as looking at how primary care relates to broader health-care outcomes, this volume describes the diversity of essential primary care features, such as accessibility, continuity and coordination, and suggests priority areas for review. A second, online volume contains structured summaries of the state of primary care in each of the 31 countries.
