Commissioning Excellence becomes PCC Insight
Our bi-monthly newsletter has changed its name from Commissioning Excellence to PCC Insight. The change, nine years after the first issue of the newsletter appeared, reflects the changing environment and the widening readership.
Helen Northall, chief executive of PCC, said: “We thought it was time for a title with broader appeal. You can’t have excellent commissioning without excellent provision and in the era of integrated care, it doesn’t make sense to have a single focal point. Increasingly the newsletter has covered topics of direct interest to providers, including sustainability, mergers, workforce and primary care networks, as well as the policy issues likely to affect them. It is not only about commissioning.”
The first issue of PCC Insight includes an update on primary care premises policy, articles arguing for changes to the payment system, a case study illustrating the value of the patient activation measure in managing long term conditions in general practice and the confessions of an STP leader. Read it here and don’t forget to sign up if you would like PCC Insight emailed to you in future.
