Commissioning news and views on GPonline.com

The team at GPonline.com has a long history of providing high quality news and opinion on all the latest developments in the commissioning community.

We have now joined forces with colleagues from our specialist commissioning website Inside Commissioning to further improve the content we offer in this key area for GPs.

The Inside Commissioning columnist Dr Chris Mimnagh is also now writing regularly for GPonline on both commissioning and providing from a GP perspective.

Our understanding of the key policies and debates, and monitoring of trends across the NHS, means that we can deliver the full picture, whether you are a GP working at a CCG, or a practice being managed or commissioned by a CCG.

Visit our dedicated Commissioning News section now to catch up with all the latest updates and viewpoints from key opinion leaders in the field, across the 209 CCGs in England.

You can also sign up for our weekly GP Commissioning email bulletin to ensure you never miss a news update.
