Local Delivery Plans

Local Delivery Plans

A general term for cycling three-year programmes drawn up by a primary care trust (PCT) as a strategy for improving the health status and healthcare provided to the local population. PCTs work with NHS Trusts, other local PCTs and members of the local health economy, such as local authorities. The strategic health authority's local delivery plan is based on those of its constituent PCTs.
