This is the latest version of the agenda* for our forthcoming co-commissioning conference, Commissioning Primary Care 2015, due to take place at the RCGP headquarters in London on 4 February.
NHS England has spelt out its plans for CCGs co-commissioning primary care from April 2015.
I have previously posted on the importance of the Five Year Forward view for the NHS and why it matters that CCGs need to find which of the new models of care fit best with their plans for the future.
We are now in the third year of our CCG's Social Investment Fund, centred around building strong communities while meeting duties to reduce health inequality.
Integration - we all know about it, we all understand that it's more than a worthy ambition and could improve the lives of many. It's even an issue on which there exists that rare form of joined-up thinking, cross-party consensus.
The Five Year Forward View from Simon Stevens is strong, reassuring and pragmatic but it is still - and he has been consistently clear about this - only a view, and a view from the quarterdeck at that.
Have you noticed that everywhere you look in the NHS nowadays everything is 'transforming?' It is the latest overused buzzword but what does it really mean?
Over the past year, CCGs have been busy developing their five year strategies. Prompted by NHS England's calls to action around primary care, they have simultaneously been thinking about how GP care in particular needs to change.
