National Clinical Commissioning Network

In bringing individuals and organisations together this framework acts as a mechanism to support assisted wheel reinvention via the sharing of information, documentation and expertise. Conversely, where necessary this framework will highlight when the duplication of approaches IS needed.

These clinical champions are part of the emerging leadership whose aim is to give a consistent message and act as a resource to help develop good/best practice in service redesign and help connect clinical commissioning.

Although sponsored and partly funded by the DH the framework is not linked to a specific organisation and, as a result, can highlight on an impartial level what may work best without ties.

Our aims are as follows:

  • To collect and share the best examples of clinical commissioning good practice
  • To support the development of commissioning tools
  • To clarify the relationship between clinical commissioning and the Transforming Community Services agenda
  • To act as an expert resource in supporting workshops and leadership development
  • To explore links with secondary care to enable development of more effective care pathways

This is not an exclusive club but a genuinely non-partisan attempt to bring together all those interested in the development of clinical commissioning. We welcome your ideas and your participation.

While the policy started off as GP Commissioning, this video shows that this network already included clinicians from a multitude of professions needed in order to best inform Clinical Commissioning.


Integrated Clinical Commissioning Community

In October 2012, participants of the National Clinical Commissioning Network and the Healthcare Professionals Commissioning Network decided to lead by example and come together to form the Integrated Clinical Commissioning Network. Now GPs, pharmacists, optometrists, nurses, dentists, AHPs and managers can participate in multi-professional networking for better patient outcomes. Launch event 16 January 2013, more information to follow.


Applying for membership

We are inviting new members who are clinicians supporting the development and implementation of clinical commissioning. The majority of participants are General Practitioners, but we have an ever increasing number of other primary care contractors as well as nurses and AHPs.

We are looking for practising clinicians who have a lead role in commissioning locally and have ability to co-ordinate information rapidly within the service.
