Dame Barbara Hakin writes to GP consortia

Dame Barbara Hakin, National Managing Director of Commissioning Development has written to emerging GP consortia, setting out the key headlines from the Government’s response to the NHS White Paper Equity and Excellence: Liberating the NHS.

Liberating the NHS: Legislative Framework and Next Steps- together with the NHS Operating Framework for 2011/12 – describes how all emerging GP consortia will increasingly take on commissioning responsibilities over the course of the next financial year, while receiving the necessary structural and financial support.

Dame Barbara’s letter supports a letter that Sir David Nicholson has sent to all NHS Chief Executives. This sets the commissioning changes in the context of the vision for the new health and care system as a whole.
