Founded with former minister The Rt Hon David Curry, The Parliamentary Review’s primary aim is to showcase the work of a number of leading organisations across the public and private sector. The publication features exclusive forewords from the Prime Minister and the BBC’s Andrew Neil, alongside content from representative organisations within each policy sector. The resulting document shows how British industry has been affected and what may be expected in the future as a result.

Despite being one of the most deprived communities in England and the challenges this can bring, Doncaster CCG has been rated ‘outstanding’ for the second consecutive year.

Dr David Crichton, GP and Chair of Doncaster Clinical Commissioning Group said: “I am immensely proud that Doncaster has had an opportunity to be featured in the latest version of The Parliamentary Review.

“The Integrated Doncaster Care Record (iDCR) is just one example of how we are working in partnership with a range of organisations across Doncaster to ensure the health and care needs of a patient can be addressed quickly and effectively. The introduction of the iDCR has been fundamentally important in the development of the Rapid Response service, providing an integrated health and care assessment in people’s homes following a fall, helping to prevent unnecessary hospital admissions.

“We know there is more work to do and we will continue to work with partners across Doncaster to improve health outcomes for our patients.”

Co-chairman of The Review, Lord Pickles, has noted that this year’s Review provides “content from a wide range of organisations – small and large; new and old; those at the peak of their powers and those who have peaks to surmount, all of whose voices must be listened to by those in power.”

Writing in The Review, the prime minister says “British politics provides ample material for analysis in the pages of The Parliamentary Review.”
