CCGs to influence GP contracts


I sometimes get the feeling this is a mechanism to ensure that future primary care can only be commissioned outwith general practice, by waving conflict of interest flags. Provided CCG appreciate they can commission from practices subject to appropriate negotiations with a Local Medical Committee then I am less troubled. Where there is an issue is where the CCG and the LMC areas are co terminous as it cannot take an indisputable "independent probity stance" if the same members are in both organisations.
