Enter The Third Sector. Enter The Private Sector

witchyounground

My Back Cat, this old witch has two bizarre notions bubbling around in her shrinking brain.

The first is:

“The Third Sector” and what it stands for, is going to turn out to be far more significant than the medical profession imagine at the moment.

I don’t know why.

I don’t know how.

The second is:

“The Third Sector” may be closely linked to “The Leadership Agenda”

I don’t know why.

I don’t know how.

Now, the elderly synapses are wandering about aimlessly at the moment but I know they will make a connection eventually.

Can you set your much younger brain to work on this, My Black Cat.

In the meantime, I’ll try An Ancient Bottle Spell to make The Old Brain young again.

OOH PROVIDERS WIN A QUARTER OF DARZI CONTRACTS

“Out-of-hours providers have won a raft of contracts for the new wave of GP-led health centres, in a move that looks set to transform their role as providers of primary care.

Almost a quarter of contracts announced so far, among responses from 90 trusts, have gone to out-of-hours organisations, with both private and not-for-profit providers winning multiple bids.

The tenders also saw the private sector encroach further on primary care, with private companies winning 12 of the 48 contracts announced – one behind the 13 won by GP-led consortiums. Almost half of PCTs missed the Government’s 31 December deadline for signing contracts.

Out of hours providers said the awards marked the beginning of a new era of integrated care.”

“Eight centres were awarded to third sector or not-for-profit organisations, with four going to GPs not in a consortium or partnership.”
