Local enhanced services: Is a lack of outcome data affecting diabetes care?

Abstract

The Local Enhanced Service (LES) is a popular commissioning tool to boost the quality of health care. Primary care providers are invited to participate in the LES and offered financial incentives. There are many LESs for Diabetes across the UK, creating opportunities for comparing their variation in content and determining best practice. However, little is known about the individual LESs and their outcomes. Calling on mostly unpublished Clinical Commissioning Groups’ documents, this paper discusses the current practice in Diabetes LESs and highlights a need for their systematic evaluation.
