Multispecialty community provider framework
The multispecialty community provider emerging care model and contract framework document, published July 2016, describes what being an MCP means, based on assembling the core features from the 14 MCP vanguards into a common framework.
Draft multispecialty community provider (MCP) Contract
In July 2016 we published the multispecialty community provider (MCP) emerging care model and contract framework. As well as describing the MCP care model in more detail, it introduced the emerging contract and business model that underpin it.
A draft version of this MCP Contract has now been published, together with a set of supporting documents that provide additional information and we are inviting feedback on these. Although the documents concern the MCP model, many of the principles are transferable to other new models of care.
The draft MCP Contract is the product of intensive joint work with a number of vanguards with whom we are co-developing the approach to ensure that the Contract will help facilitate local plans.
We welcome your comments on these draft documents by 20 January 2017. These, along with any questions, can be submitted here.
In early 2017, an updated version of the MCP Contract, using the feedback provided, will be published for initial use by vanguards. This will inform a further revision and a formal consultation during 2017.
