Paradigms, politics and pragmatics: psychotherapy in primary care in City and Hackney – a new model for the NHS: Part 2: operational model, practice and outcomes

Emily Hard, Brian Rock and Julian Stern

Whilst an earlier paper (Part 1) in this journal describes the historical, political and economic drivers behind the creation of the City and Hackney Primary Care Psychotherapy Consultation Service (PCPCS), this paper (Part 2) focuses on exploring the context within which the service functions. The paper provides an overview of its operational model and is organised into 10 sections. The first section outlines the service's clinical practice, whilst the second addresses the value of GP consultations as a core part of the PCPCS's provision. The third section addresses how the service, as departure from a more ‘pure’ psychoanalytic tradition of providing longer-term therapy, has managed its provision of brief treatments. There is a description of how the service manages its team of multi-disciplinary clinicians and their work in a variety of micro-cultures, conveying some of the challenges faced by the service and the team since its inception. Thereafter, the quantitative and qualitative evidence for the service's clinical and cost effectiveness is assessed, including outcome results and findings from a health economic evaluation. To illustrate some of the service's work in practice, some disguised clinical vignettes are presented. The paper also summarises the service's recent clinical innovations, as well as its contribution to the field of research, audit and training. Finally, the way forward for the service is considered in the context of current and emerging trends in psychological provision in primary care.
