The NHS needs to change what and how it commissions to create patient-focused integrated services within the resources available. In order to improve patient outcomes we need to commission them. We need to create the right environment that promotes provider to provider-led change through systems of provision delivering value.
This approach has the potential to fundamentally challenge the role of the commissioner and how they work with the system of patients, clinicians and providers. It has the potential to create a new system of provision that creates common incentives to deliver better care.

The full-day workshop helps to understand the approach and how it can support the transformation in care needed for a sustainable NHS. It will allow delegates to consider the challenges and what they would need to do to adopt this locally. It will also explore the role that primary care and federations can have at the heart of systems of care.

The workshop explores:

• The incentives created by the present contracting arrangements
• Understanding value in healthcare
• The benefits of a different approach
• Commissioners have the freedom to do things differently
• Working with the system to define the outcomes
• Defining the right populations
• Determining the budget
• Contracting and procurement

The workshop will allow commissioners at all levels to understand the potential for outcomes-based commissioning for their populations and the steps they need to take to make it happen.
