2007

March A letter from the Camden Primary Care Trust (PCT) dated 12 March announcing the service specification "for future tendering of General Primary Care Services in Camden, and the selection criteria we will use to decide who is awarded the contract" was supposedly sent "to whom it may concern". The consultation period was to run from 12 March to 13 April 2007. This letter and the related 28-page document were not in fact received or obtained by the majority of patients (in fact, no one has yet been found who says they got the consultation letter).
