The White Paper, "Equity and Excellence: Liberating the NHS" published on 12 July 2010, has set out our proposals for transforming the quality of commissioning by devolving decision-making to local consortia of general practitioner (GP) practices.

"Liberating the NHS: Commissioning for patients" published on 22 July sets out further information on the intended arrangements for GP commissioning, providing the basis for fuller engagement with primary care professionals and the public. The details of the financial regime will be worked up as part of the consultation process.
