Despite considerable efforts to reduce emergency admissions, only a minority of primary care trusts (PCTs) succeeded in doing so between 2007/8 and 2008/9 (Gillam 2010). The average increase in admissions during this time was 5 per cent across all PCTs, ranging from a 12.7 per cent decrease to a 27.3 per cent increase. In order to successfully reduce avoidable emergency admissions, we need to fully understand which interventions are the most effective.
