Support for primary care commissioning committees

CCG boards need to understand how primary care contracts can help them to achieve – or prevent them from achieving – their strategic aims.

Primary care commissioning committees, the decision-making bodies for the exercise of delegated powers, may include individuals with no knowledge or direct experience of contracting. Yet CCGs with full delegated responsibility for primary medical care contracts are responsible for reviewing existing contractual arrangements and managing failing and underperforming contracts.

PCC runs workshops that encourage CCGs to use local scenarios to bring to life and discuss the potential complexities of contracting and the factors commissioners need to take into account.
