What we thought we might find
What we found
‘ The balance of risks and incentives placed on commissioners and providers in the NHS appears at present to be wrong. Commissioners seek to develop more population-focused and preventative approaches to care [...] yet providers remain incentivised to increase activity and expand services within their organisation.
Perhaps the strongest message from this research is that PCTs have struggled to put providers sufficiently at risk in relation to developing better integrated and more efficient care.’
Ham, Smith and Eastmure, 2011, p35
