FINANCE: NHS Sandwell has delegated 75 per cent of its cost improvement programmes to GP consortia.
The PCT’s revised CIP target for 2011-12 is £3.66m, meaning the three consortia are responsible for £2.7m.
The cluster will retain approximately £1m. It is anticipated that the cluster will get primary care budgets, specialised services contracts, estates and public health.
The rest will be roughly split across the three consortia.
