A joint report by the NHS Alliance and think-tank The Nuffield Trust says radical solutions are needed to ‘nudge clinically-led commissioning into life.' 

Beyond PBC proposes multi-specialty groups of clinicians take responsibility for designing health services.

These ‘local clinical partnerships' (LCPs) should be given population-based budgets covering at least 100,000 people, the reports says. It also suggests adding incentives into to GMS and PMS contracts to get GPs to join an LCP.
