Practices sceptical about PBC benefit

More practices do not think that practice-based commissioning (PBC) has improved patient care than do, according to DoH figures.

They show that 29 per cent disagree that PBC has improved patient care compared with 18 per cent who do.

48 per cent thought PCT managerial support for PBC was poor compared with 44 per cent who felt it was good.

General support for PBC has actually risen from 37 to 49 per cent over the last year.

A total of 46 per cent of practices had commissioned at least one new service compared with 33 per cent a year ago.
