polysystem modelA model of healthcare delivery in the UK, at the centre of which is a polyclinic (see there) which is connected to surrounding GPs, pharmacists and opticians. It is described as “an over-arching model that embraces all that is good about local healthcare and is committed to further raising standards across the board. It presents a more uniform approach where health professionals are closely linked to one another so patients receive a consistently high level of care within easy reach of their homes”.
