Commissioning and funding general practice

The King’s Fund has produced a report on the new models of primary care provision already being used to meet the growing demands placed on local services by a growing and ageing population.

The report argues that commissioning also needs to change to reflect new models of provision, and points to the problems caused by existing funding approaches. Existing contracts may be inadequate for commissioning what the report calls “family care networks”.
