The Transforming Community Services programme must be halted until the white paper reforms are in place, said the NHS Alliance.
Under the programme, NHS community service providers are currently in the process of being integrated with other NHS trusts or turned into social enterprises.
NHS Alliance chair Michael Dixon said: “GP commissioners must have a hand in deciding the future of community services. Decisions on transforming community services must be postponed until GP commissioners are in place.”
