As of April 2018, 91% of CCGs have taken on delegated responsibility for the commissioning and management of primary medical services, but NHS England remains liable for the decisions they take.  In November 2017 NHS England published the Policy and Guidance Manual to mitigate the risk of time-consuming and costly challenges to primary medical contracts.  

PCC successfully supported NHS England in delivering national events to introduce the PGM in late 2017. Now it is running further events to clarify the guidance and regulations required to manage and govern these contracts properly.  

The events focus on key aspects of the Policy and Guidance Manual, using scenarios and opportunities for questions to give commissioners a better understanding of contracting and patient matters including:

  • Overview of background and context
  • Contract type and eligibility
  • Contract variations, mergers and novation
  • Contracting for essential, additional and enhanced services
  • Contract management and disputes
  • Patients: areas, list and other arrangements.

You should attend if you have direct responsibility or oversight of the management of primary medical contracts in a CCG or if you work in an NHS England team providing support to CCGs in their new delegated roles.
