Fundamentals of Commissioning

Navigating the changing landscape of NHS commissioning
27th March 2007 – Savoy Place, Institute of Electrical Engineers, London

With unprecedented system reform, NHS commissioning has taken on a new level of complexity. In an environment where commissioning power has been devolved to GPs, money follows the patient and new service models and providers continue to evolve, the pressure is really on to deliver patient-centred services. Commissioning has always been a difficult process to understand and now more than ever you need to get to grips with what this all means.

As an NHS colleague, partner or supplier you need to have a solid understanding of what constitutes effective commissioning, the skills required and how new commissioning models will take shape. Being armed with this knowledge, you will be able to drive service redesign and improvement across your local health economy.

Health Service Journal brings you an educational seminar to focus on the key aspects of commissioning in the NHS. Providing expert guidance and focused in-depth sessions, navigate the complexities of NHS commissioning. This is a learning opportunity not to be missed.

This event has been tailored to meet your needs and will give you the essential information to understand:

• The future challenges and skills required to meet the demands of this new landscape
• Driving forward Practice Based Commissioning
• Commissioning Patient Choice
• Prioritising and effectively using data and information
• Identifying the impact of Payment by Results
• Commissioning an 18 week pathway
• Taking joint commissioning and commissioning of specialised services forward
• Commissioning from a plurality of providers

Join your peers across PCTs, Acute, Mental Health and Foundation Trusts, the Independent Sector and Local Government and truly drill down into the fundamentals of NHS commissioning.
