The Health Service Journal has published a long and interesting item about Birmingham OwnHealth, the service developed by NHS Direct and Pfizer which will, no doubt, form the basis of the national developments they are planning. (See Watch out NHS – they’ll get you directly!).

What caught my attention was that Birmingham East and North PCT “has agreed to scale up OwnHealth from 2,000 members now to 11,000 by March 2009 and 27,000 by 2012.” Read the article here.
