Overview

The government has proposed a raft of reforms to be made at both the central and local level as to how health and social care services will be provided in the future. The Department of Health estimates that abolishing PCTs and handing their commissioning roles to GPs and consortia will cost £1.6 billion with external estimates putting it nearer to £3.5 billion. Finding innovative ways to deliver services, with more involvement of user groups, will be key to ensuring that this sizeable cost does lead to improved services.
