Care management has emerged as a central component in the development of community based care in many countries. It<p><p>has been government policy for providers of social services to develop care management systems in the United Kingdom since 1993. This paper examines the extent to which it is possible to begin to discern models of care from the different care management arrangements which are now emerging. First the background to changes in policy and the role of care management in the UK social care system are discussed; secondly evidence from the early phases of care management<p><p>development in the UK is examined; and thirdly, based upon the pilot phase of a major national study of care management, the key dimensions of variation in care management through which models may be constituted are identified.
