New publication highlights the strengths of clinical commissioning that must be retained in a changing NHS
A new publication from NHS Clinical Commissioners, the independent membership organisation for clinical commissioners, showcases the strength and value that clinical commissioning has embedded in to the system since the establishment of CCGs and argues that these are essential to developing integrated services that are fit for purpose and get the best value for each NHS pound.
The changing face of clinical commissioning highlights the important patient centred work that is taking place across the country to drive through innovations and improvements across health and social care – often in partnership with other organisations – through a series of interviews with clinical commissioning leaders at nine CCGs.
It presents recommendations aimed at national leaders to ensure that three elements are retained as ICSs develop: tangible ‘place’ level links and responsibilities; the system perspective provided by clinical commissioners; and keeping clinical engagement at the core.
The changing face of clinical commissioning: Working to improve the health of the population is available from the NHSCC website: www.nhscc.org/the-changing-face-of-clinical-commissioning
