National Diabetes Inpatient Audit Primary care commissioning activity report (PCAR) RETIRED

The PCAR was introduced in 2016/17 to support greater assurance and oversight of NHS England’s primary care commissioning responsibilities. It replaced what had often been variable and ad hoc requests for information with a more systematic approach.

The National Diabetes Inpatient Audit Primary care commissioning activity report (PCAR) collection has been retired. 


What information was collected

The primary care commissioning report collected information on local commissioning activity regardless of the commissioning route, for example, NHS England or CCGs with delegated authority.

The main areas of interest for reporting included:

  • management of contractual performance
  • financial assistance to providers
  • procurement and expiry of contracts
  • availability of services, including closed lists
  • assurance of policy compliance and implementation
