STRUCTURE: Doncaster PCT has disbanded its professional executive committee and established a Commissioning Consortium Board as a sub committee of the PCT board.

The emerging consortium, which covers all practices in the PCT area, is subdivided into five areas. Each has elected two GPs to the board, and a Doncaster wide chair will be elected.

The last meeting of the GP Commissioning Transition Forum, the predecessor group, agreed commissioning priorities for the next 12 months in line with the area financial plan. They are: Reablement, Clinical Services Review, Continuing Healthcare, Long Term Conditions, Referral Management, Medicines Management.

Employment of the PCT’s Clinical Leadership Forum members, who have taken part in the PEC and more recently the GP Commissioning Transition Forum, ended on 31 March.
