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

A draft version of this MCP Contract was published in December 2016, together with a set of supporting documents that provide additional information. Feedback was invited on these until 20 January 2017. 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. 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.

The draft MCP Contract and supporting documents are available below:
