This article describes the evaluation of a scheme to improve communication between primary care nurses and newly established primary care groups. Findings suggest that the successes of the scheme were in part attributable to the appointment of experienced practitioners to a facilitator/link nurse role and the sustained support of the scheme by the NHS community trust. The article concludes by suggesting that, in a time of constant change within primary care, innovations such as these contribute to the development of practitioner participation in the organization and delivery of primary care services.
