Pharmaceutical Services Negotiating Committee (PSNC) -
This briefing summarises NHS England’s document The multispecialty community provider (MCP) emerging care model and contract framework (July 2016), which describes MCPs – a new place-based model of care – and the emerging contract framework which NHS England is currently developing to support the rollout of this approach to health and care provision. It is expected that many MCPs will develop over the next few years and pharmacy contractors and LPCs therefore need to engage in their development in order to shape how they will impact on community pharmacy services at a local level.

It lays out a clear vision for providing joined up primary, community and secondary, social care to residents of care and nursing homes, via a range of in reach services.

NHS England -
This framework is for local health and care systems, organisations, communities and patients, wishing to develop and implement new ways of working. This framework document uses the learning from the nine PACS vanguards to support local health and care systems planning to implement a PACS model. It outlines the next steps required to set up the model - including the need to develop new contractual, funding and organisational form. It sets out three contractual options that will help make a phased transition towards a fully-fledged PACS - a single provider with a single contract for all local health and care services.
