The purpose of this article is to delve into the precise 'leadership' and 'governance' roles required of General Practitioners in England as they are propelled into new Clinical Commissioning Groups.

A conceptual framework which captures the complementary essences of both leadership and governance is developed and then used to assess the extent to which GPs will be undertaking leadership and/or governance roles within the commissioning groups.
