This week we have written to local ICBs to set out our expectations in relation to locally commissioned quality contracts and enhanced services. It is not acceptable for contract payments to remain static year on year in the face of rising practice expenses and we are looking for this to be recognised.

You can see a copy of our open letter to Peter Tinson, director of Primary Care at Lancashire & South Cumbria ICB, and Ed Tallis, director of Place at North East and North Cumbria

We will keep you informed on the future discussion this prompts.
