The Royal College of General Practitioners published a document entitled "Patient access to
general practice: ideas and challenges from the front line".  Robin Lane is highlighted as a case study: The Robin Lane Medical Centre has developed a smartphone app through which patients can request appointments, send secure messages to clinicians and set appointment reminders. The development of the app was funded by the practice itself and cost £5,000....the practice (also) uses a number of other means to engage with the local community more widely – including setting up a local wellbeing centre next to the practice, run in partnership with voluntary sector organisations. The app is now being used by around 700 patients."

Arts Council England

In January 2014, we entered into and arts partnership with Arts Council England, funded by the Big Lottery.

The purpose of the programme was to:

> develop a new arts venue, audiences for the arts, opportunities for arts participation and for

artists, from a primary care base in Pudsey, Leeds.

> take arts in primary care in a brand new direction, using the potential of large untapped audiences and a local gap in arts provision to open up new opportunities for accessing great arts experiences through a programme of live events, workshops and artist collaborations.

> strategically increase spend on the arts from the health sector

This is report extrapolates learning from the project, gives an overview of the activity, measured against the original aims of the project and touches on future plans in its consideration of sustainability.
