Motivation is needed to see clinical commissioning succeed

The original idea, widely supported in principle, was that GPs should be put in a stronger position to act as the agents of patients, enabling their choices and supporting the design of care services that met their needs. Clinical commissioning groups as an alternative to primary care trusts became the preferred route to formally give family doctors the necessary leadership powers.
