Abstract

<p>In 1983 the Department of Health and Social Security commissioned the PSSRU to monitor and evaluate the Care in the Community demonstration programme of 28 pilot projects, which moved over 900 people with long-term needs from hospital to community settings. An earlier book, <i>Care in the Community: The First Steps</i>, described and analysed the origins and development of the programme, and traced the early developments of projects, in addition to documenting the policy background to community care.

<p><p><p>The second book fully describes the evaluation programme and seeks to answer pressing questions of policy and practice. Who moved to the community from hospital under the programme? Did their lives change for the better or worse, and how? What were the costs? Were the objectives set by the projects met? How did the projects differ, what are the pitfalls new projects must avoid, and how can they maximise their chances of success? What were the local and national backgrounds to the programme and what can we learn for the future?
