GP Commissioning

Anyone got an idea what it is about?

If commissioning is about the purchaser/provider split, where the people who USE healthcare are separate from the people who PROVIDE the healthcare, how does that fit in with GP commissioning?

GPs provide something like half of NHS healthcare contacts (NHS daily contacts: 51% with GPs; 24% with total community care; 7% outpatient attendances; 6% in bed emergency; 3% A&E emergency; 2% in bed elective).

So who is buying healthcare, and who is providing it?
