Will practice-based commissioning in the English NHS resolve the problems experienced by GP fundholding ?

Greener, I. and Mannion, R. (2008) 'Will practice-based commissioning in the English NHS resolve the problems experienced by GP fundholding ?', Public money and management., 28 (4). pp. 231-238.

Abstract

Labour's new approach to primary health care, based around the policy of practice-based commissioning, has considerable potential for learning from the general practitioner fundholding reforms put in place by the Conservative governments of the 1990s. However, practice-based commissioning seems to repeat many of the same problems as the earlier policy. Despite the increased scope for GPs to make a significant difference to the shape of local health economies because of the incentives and opportunities offered by payment by results and patient choice reforms, the potential problems of practice-based commissioning threaten the reform's viability and long-term success.
