Integration will mean a change in commissioning

If integration is the “right thing to do”, it should be made the easy thing to do, according to Paul MauBach, chief executive officer of Dudley and Walsall Clinical Commissioning Group.

Reflecting on his experience leading a multispecialty community provider (MCP) in Dudley and an alliance contract with Walsall, he says: “If you look at current governance and structures they work against integration; especially the contracting. A priority for me as a commissioner is the need to change the way we commission. In Dudley we have done a lot round commissioning for outcomes rather than on activity and we make those outcomes the same for GPs and for consultants.
