Since last time there are 4 new posts, all published on theinformationdaily.com (here):

What is co-commissioning?  – which looks at how in a short space of time co-commissioning of primary care seemed to evolve from delegated budgets to partnership working between CCGs and NHS England.

Out of hours healthcare provision in need of urgent treatment – which suggests that with development of 111, extended primary care hours, and GP streams in A&E departments, the role of out of hours needs to be urgently reviewed.

The Lost Art of Clinical Commissioning – which says that because of procurement processes CCGs are losing their focus on inspiring and empowering clinicians from all specialties to come together to make change happen

Is the Better Care Fund preventing integration rather than promoting it? – concerns about the shift of money from health to social care, evidence about the lack of impact of integrating health and social care commissioning functions, and an overly bureaucratic process mean the potential gains of integration could be lost.
