PCT employs firm to commission services

A second PCT has employed a large private sector company to commission services for its patients.

Tribal Consulting will take charge of assessing the needs of patients and commissioning health services for Ashton, Leigh and Wigan PCT for the next five years.

The deal is part of the DoH’s Framework for Procuring External Support for Commissioners (FESC) which recommends 14 companies that PCTs can use to improve commissioning performance.

In July, Northamptonshire Teaching PCT announced UnitedHealth UK would be commissioning health services over the next three years.
