Following the publication last month of the operating model for GP IT services, work is now taking place with clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) to agree GP IT budgets.
Securing Excellence in GP IT Services described how responsibility for operational management of GP IT services, along with associated funding, was devolving to CCGs to manage on behalf of the NHS Commissioning Board (NHS CB).
CCGs are working with NHS CB area teams to secure a provider for GP IT services from 1 April 2013. The NHS CB is devolving funding to meet the costs of these services and the costs involved in managing the contract for these services.
