4 Issues & challenges for PCTs? new complex shared services deficits performance targets commissioning and providing services old structures to deal with mergers moving goalposts

5 Issues for CHI PCTs are complex, heterogeneous, dispersed and developing organisations PCTs can exercise different levels of responsibility: they can commission and provide quite markedly different ranges of services what CHI sees in these reviews may be as much a legacy of the PCTs past as a testament to progress

6 PCT Boards have responsibility for, but no direct control over, a significant proportion of the services they provide the public has a relatively low level of background knowledge of primary care trusts. What does PCT stand for? we have been asked on more than one occasion the language of clinical governance is still new to some practitioners commissioning and health improvement as well as provision

7 What does a PCT clinical review involve? For more detailed information on PCT clinical governance review methods go to on the clinical governance reviews tab at the top of the page 2.scroll down to the link clinical governance reviews of primary care trusts

8 The review methods refined methods for use in PCTs expert panel consultation with patient organisations and primary care field two seminars pilot process feedback from PCTs evaluation revised process

9 How do we pick you for review? reviewing in clusters randomised system generally 2 months notice provided all PCTs listed on all PCTs will be reviewed
