The Government has recognised the potential for practice-led commissioning and is committed to giving all primary care practices an indicative budget by April 2005. Devolution of commissioning responsibilities will support the empowerment of patients by enabling the identification and development of patient-sensitive care packages in local populations. However, practice-led commissioning models, guidance and developmental work are currently limited, creating a confused understanding of the mechanics for effective practical implementation.
