Commissioning for Value

This area supports CCGs in identifying the best opportunities to increase value and improve outcomes. Commissioning for Value identifies priority programmes which offer the best opportunities to improve healthcare for your populations. Improving the value that patients receive from their healthcare and improving the value that populations receive from investment in their local health system.

CfV Pack

Commissioning for Value Insight packs are a vital part of NHS England’s 'Call to Action’ where everyone is being encouraged to take an active part in ensuring a sustainable future for the NHS. The first product CCGs will receive as part of the new planning round for commissioners are the commissioning for value packs. The insights in these packs will support local discussion about prioritisation and utilisation of resources. The aim is to help local leaders to improve healthcare quality, outcomes, and efficiency by providing the first phase in the NHS Right Care approach “Where to look”. That is, where to look to help CCGs to deliver value to their populations.

These packs aim to:

  • Identify local opportunities for improvement, in health outcomes, patient experience, or finance.
  • Accessing, analysing and understanding relevant clinical data.
  • Benchmarking of their CCG’s and health community’s outcomes against similar populations elsewhere.

Interactive Tools

We have also produced an interactive version of the Commissioning for Value packs. There are two views of the data:

  • The Commissioning for Value Tool allows users to view maps, charts and tables for the indicators in the packs across CCGs, and to view a spine chart of all the indicators for one or more CCGs.

Flash Version            HTML Version

  • The Commissioning for Value Explorer allows the user to explore the relationships between two indicators using maps and scatter plots.

Flash Version            HTML Version

Each view is available in Flash and HTML5 versions. The flash version offers slightly greater functionality and will work on older browsers, but requires a Flash plugin to be installed and is not supported by devices such as Apple iPads. The HTML5 version works across most devices with newer browsers, including many mobile devices.


Supporting Files

These files have been released to support the Commissioning for Value packs and interactive tools. They include the 'similar 10' CCG methodology, which contains the data and methodology used to calculate the similar 10 CCGs, the source data, used to feed the packs and interactive tools, the annexes to the packs and the metadata file.
