By April 2013, Primary Care Trusts (PCTs) will no longer exist, to be replaced with general practitioner (GP) led consortia, putting power directly with the frontline staff to control their budgets. This is the 'liberating state' in action, devolving decision-making powers to the health care professionals closest to patients. However, for most GPs, the power of commissioning is an entirely new responsibility: one that will require new organisational forms to be effective. This pamphlet investigates the example of NHS Cumbria, where GP-led consortia have been in development since June 2009, using it as a case study of the future of the NHS.
