This chapter evaluates projects designed to ease ‘winter pressures’. It explains that the study was carried out on the cusp of change, as Primary Care Trusts were forming and central government was shifting the goalposts for ‘capacity planning’ in health and social care. It explains that whatever the methodological preferences of evaluators, it is probably only possible to engage in participatory evaluation to the extent that the project under scrutiny has attempted to involve users.

Keywords:   partnerships, participatory evaluation, primary care trusts, capacity planning, health care, social care
