• A fair, supportive society: summary report

    7 November 2018

    This report, commissioned by NHS England, highlights that some of the most vulnerable people in society – those with learning disabilities – will die 15-20 years sooner on average than the general population.

    Much of the government action needed to improve life expectancy for people with disabilities is likely to reduce health inequalities for everyone. The report recommends that action should focus on the social determinants of health, particularly addressing poverty, poor housing, discrimination and bullying.

  • Primary care contract reviews

    6 November 2018

    Ever changing commissioning arrangements have taken their toll in terms of continuity, capacity and organisational memory. Commissioners don’t always know where all their contracts are or whether they have been drafted correctly. Often these questions won’t be asked until a dispute arises with a provider, by which time it is too late. If contracts have fallen between the cracks or were incorrectly drafted, you need to know. We have worked with CCGs to audit their existing contracts to ensure that they are getting the services they think they’re paying for and to avoid the reputational damage and other costs of contract disputes. Contact enquiries@pcc-cic.org.uk to find out how we can help you to get your primary care house in order.
