Innovative contracting for new care models


Innovative contracting for new care models

The aspirations of the Five Year Forward View depend on more imaginative and flexible contracting to overcome the problems posed by existing primary care contracts.

The NHS standard contract is the tool that should be used to contract with new models and systems of care. This new approach will require understanding of the mechanics of the contract and how it can be used to influence and change behaviours.

Jointly delivered by PCC and Capsticks, this event will help commissioners and senior managers in CCGs to understand how to develop system solutions rather than piecemeal services.

The event is also relevant for local authority commissioners, who also have the option to use the NHS standard contract, and for provider organisations who need to understand the implications of providing services under the contract.

The event described by one delegate as “well presented, interactive, responsive, [and with] good examples” will be held on 18 November in London, 1 December in Bristol, 9 December in Manchester, 12 January in Birmingham, 25 February in Reading and 10 March in London.
