Other competencies include actuarial skills, population engagement and choice, competition and contestability, Mark Britnell, NHS director general for commissioning and system management, told a National Association of Primary Care conference on primary care redesign in London last week.
PCTs and commissioning groups will pick 12 to 15 key health outcomes they wish to secure for their populations.
PCTs will then be held to account for the development of the key competencies.
The third building block is a five-year strategy for health gain that every PCT will be expected to produce.
‘World-class commissioning is local, accountable, focused on outcomes and underpinned by competencies,’ Mr Britnell said.
