Directors in the news!

Our shared directors of workforce, Jenny Allen and Laura Smith, have been in the news this week.

Legal support for primary care networks

The Confederation has commissioned a package of legal support for primary care networks from our legal advisors, Hill Dickinson. The support includes legal formation, governance and decision making, principle setting and dispute resolution, admission and exit processes, data and information sharing agreements and processes, and the appointment and employment support of clinical directors.

Changes to the commissioning of MJOG

NHS Leeds CCG currently holds the contract for the MJOG SMS text messaging service for all GP practices in Leeds on an agreement that ends in July 2019. After that, responsibility for the MJOG licences will sit with the Confederation, while the costs of texts will remain with the CCG.
