Holding GP Pathfinder Consortia to Account
Filed under: Private Eye — Dr. Phil @ 12:09 pm

Below are the 54 GP Pathfinder consortia who are apparently leading the way in GP commissioning. The plan is that GP consortia will eventially manage £80 billion of NHS funds, which seems an awful lot. So it’s important to keep them on their toes. Ask to see the published minutes of all their meetings and accounts for how the money is being spent. You may, rather depressingly, have to file a Freedom of Information request to get them. Let me know how you get on.
