Commissioning and funding general practice: Making the case for family care networks – King’s Fund – 19 February 2014

“As England’s population both expands and ages, so the demands on primary care will grow. Within the current commissioning and funding system innovative models of primary care provision are already being used. This report describes examples of these through four case studies in different areas of England. It also highlights how the existing system is imperfectly understood, particularly regarding contracts.

Building on ideas articulated in previous work, the report argues for a new approach that brings together funding for general practice with funding for many other services. It would entail new forms of commissioning, with GPs innovating in how care is delivered. Over time, the report foresees ‘family care networks’ emerging that provide forms of care well beyond what is currently available in general practices.”

Networks that work: partnerships for integrated care and services – Nesta – August 2013

“This report shows how consortia work in practice, what the barriers are and how these barriers can be overcome.

Case studies detail how networks can support the integration of care and services in different ways, including commissioning services together, providing services together and delivering services together.

The work of the People Powered Health teams has shown that three core actions are necessary for partnerships to be successful – establishing a common purpose, developing a shared culture and enabling information sharing and open dialogue.”
