Making progress in health outcomes - world class commissioning - your help is needed

World class commissioning - can you help ?

For some commissioners, the whole point of world class commissioning - to improve health and reduce inequalities - or 'adding life to years and years to life' has received less attention than building and measuring competencies. That's changing. On behalf of the Department of Health, NHS PCC working with a small consortium, is building the prototype of a tool specifically targetted at commissioners who want to be sure they are:

  • applying the most effective evidence based interventions
  • building robust and metric-rich business cases to make progress in their chosen outcomes 
  • aware of the data that can support their progress and how they compare with other commissioners

Our work is based on the good practice that PCTs, practice based commissioners and local authority partners do together so please over the next three weeks send your local examples along with your contact details to wendie.groves@pcc.nhs.uk. We'll draw on your good practice and share it with others. Thank you!
