STRUCTURE: Consortium commissioning is at an early stage of development in Swindon, with no “specific structure or constitution for consortia”.

The primary care trust said it could not identify any emerging consortia.

It said: “The consortium in Swindon is still in development, the lead being taken by the Swindon Transitional Leadership Group, which is a sub-committee of the PCT.

At this stage there is not a specific structure or constitution for consortia and therefore GP practices are not members.”
