STRUCTURE: Five commissioning consortia are emerging across the Derby City and Derbyshire County primary care trust areas.

They are called Erewash, High Peak & Buxton, Chesterfield & North Derbyshire, Derby City & South Derbyshire and Independent Cluster.

Several practices in the region are not aligned to clusters.

The PCTs are developing plans to align staff and functions to emerging consortia, which they will take on “under delegated authority in the near future”.
