ABSTRACT
This editorial looks at 30 "closer to home" medical treatment demonstration facilities in Great Britain to see if they worked out for the patients and financially. Sites that had community support and input did much better than sites that did not. Overall, patients were pleased with the convenience, the care and the shorter waiting times. Figuring out if they are cost-effective is difficult due to several factors but the authors believe the facilities have a future in the medical system.
