Description: The objectives of the proposed investment in a replacement for General Practice System of Choice are: • Establish commercial and management arrangements for GP IT that facilitate an open and informed market over the life of this investment; • Support delivery of efficiency savings in General Practice by facilitating better use of existing GP IT and by adopting more mobile working technology and patient facing transactional services over the life of this investment; • Develop new IT functionality that responds to the evolving needs of patients, practices and commissioners and the wider NHS. In particular, develop interoperability to deliver information to point of care, provide data to support commissioning and improve care pathway management; and • Improve security of patient data by providing practices with the option to migrate to centrally hosted services over the life of this investment.
DCA (RAG): Amber
DCA text: The MPA RAG rating was Amber at Q2 2014. Specific points contributing to the Amber Delivery Confidence assessment will need to be addressed to achieve a green delivery confidence. These are: Late delivery of Patient Facing Services and other new subsidiary modules under General Practice System of Choice which is likely to reduce the benefit delivered under the framework in 2014/15; A key objective of the new framework was to open up the market to smaller, subsidiary suppliers but the introduction of new services was delayed due to deficiencies in suppliers' offerings and a lack of HSCIC capacity to perform assurance activity and requirements definition; and Authority assurance activity for supplier services is being streamlined and requirements are being re-prioritised as mitigation against further delay. The Authority will shortly be revising the contract to reflect the new priorities and target dates for delivery. Suppliers are in the process of responding to ascertain what Principal and Subsidiary offerings (including global switch on) can be achieved by March 2015. All critical actions were completed after the Gate 4 review in September 2014. 3 essential actions are in progress, 2 of which require Programme Board sign off before they can be closed, which related to the refreshed vision for the service and levers to achieve it. The final action will be closed in March-15, which relates to capacity and capability of the team, with recruitment and other activities underway to close the previously identified gaps. The Lot 1 Interface Mechanism Operational Readiness was delivered 29 Oct 14 and Lot 2 Contracts were signed 5 Nov 14. .
Start date: 2012-01-26

Schedule text: Programme on track.
Baseline: £79.64m
Forecast: £90.34m
Variance: 13.40%
Variance text: 2014/15 budget figures were taken from the approved General Practice System of Choice Replacement Appointment Business Case v2.4. Whilst the approvals were in progress the procurement negotiations were ongoing which resulted in changes to the unit pricing and annual profile of charges. Furthermore one of the principal suppliers was not able to sign the contract in March 2014 which increased the forecast for 2014/15 and the forecast therefore includes the decision to procure new GP services from The Phoenix Partnership via General Practice System of Choice instead of through the North Midlands and East Local Service Provider contract.
Whole Life Cost: £309.42m
WLCost text: No change to budgeted Whole Life Costs which are as per the approved General Practice System of Choice Replacement Appointment Business Case v2.4.
