Commissioning and funding general practice

Our report argues for a new approach that brings together funding for general practice with funding for many other services. This would entail new forms of commissioning, with GPs innovating in how care is delivered. As England’s population both expands and ages, so the demands on primary care will grow. Within the current commissioning and funding system innovative models of primary care provision are already being used. This report describes examples of these through four case studies in different areas of England. It also highlights how the existing system is imperfectly understood, particularly regarding contracts.

Providing integrated care for older people with complex needs

This report synthesises evidence from seven integrated care case studies, and identifies lessons for policy-makers and service providers to help with the challenges ahead. Around the world, rapidly ageing populations are resulting in increased demand for health and social care services, which presents significant challenges for national health and care systems. Many have adopted an integrated care approach to meet the needs of older people with chronic or multiple conditions. This approach often involves a single point of entry – designating a care manager to help with assessing needs, sharing information, and co-ordinating care delivery by multiple caregivers (formal and informal).
