Following recent discussions on governance arrangements of PCT clusters, Jim Easton, National Director for Improvement and Efficiency, wrote to Chief Executives setting out conlusions of the NHS Management Board. His letter explains that out of the four governance models considered, model 2 was regarded as the most appropriate one.
