Royal college argues for new approach to outpatient care

The Royal College of Physicians says a new approach to outpatient care is needed if it is to meet growing demand and reduce disruption to patients’ lives.

Its report describes the current one-size-fits-all model as no longer fit for purpose and recommends replacing it with a person-centred approach that recognises that people have varying health needs, personal pressures and abilities to self-care or self-manage.
