Reuniting care

Reuniting care Eighteen months into the multispecialty community provider (MCP) and primary and acute care system (PACS) vanguards, commissioners are preparing to contract for the new models while providers are considering how to bind themselves together as a coherent system – the focus of our new report.

During the initial phase of the programme, commissioners and providers worked in relatively informal partnerships to develop the MCP and PACS care models. That may have been a pragmatic approach to kick-starting the vanguards, but rather more robust arrangements are now clearly needed before commissioners can transfer substantial budgets to providers on long-term contracts.

So how should multiple local providers – primary care, community services, local hospitals, social care and potentially other services – bind themselves together as a coherent organisation or partnership, one that is capable of managing a multi-million pound budget and making the most efficient use of resources?
