NHS England -
This framework is for local health and care systems, organisations, communities and patients, wishing to develop and implement new ways of working. This framework document uses the learning from the nine PACS vanguards to support local health and care systems planning to implement a PACS model. It outlines the next steps required to set up the model - including the need to develop new contractual, funding and organisational form. It sets out three contractual options that will help make a phased transition towards a fully-fledged PACS - a single provider with a single contract for all local health and care services.
