In a nutshell: Out-of-hours GP Care in England, Denmark and the Netherlands has been re-organised and is now provided by large scale GP co-operatives. Adequate transfer of information is necessary in order to assure continuity of care, which is of major importance in palliative care. This article examines the availability, content and effect of information transferred to GP locums in the context of out of hours palliative care.
