The board, which takes shadow form as a special health authority in June, will commission all primary care services as well as allocating budgets to consortia and holding GPs to account for outcomes and financial performance. Boards look set to have a wide range of representatives with those from private providers sitting alongside more members of the traditional NHS family.
