      This project started in 2015 at the suggestion of Dr Joe Clarke, Advisor to the HSE Primary Care Division relied heavily on the expertise within the PCSA and the management know-how of the ICGP.
      Thanks to all involved in what was a most important undertaking for the PCSA. Twenty-three GPs were accredited and over 4,000 patients treated over six months. More than a hundred were signed up for the second round but , while the HSE were willing to fund this, the GMS contract negotiations prevented our being able to find a mechanism to draw down these funds that was not going to set an unhelpful precedent.
      The research reports generated by the project will at least show how this can be done again in the future.
