Details

This guide looks at how to pull the whole commissioning system together, focusing on:

  • interfaces in commissioning responsibility, detailing the areas where more than 1 commissioning organisation is responsible for different elements of care that an individual may need. Includes how commissioning bodies need to work together to ensure that the individual experiences seamless delivery of services to meet their needs.

  • addressing the wider determinants of health, illustrating examples of how local areas are taking a wider view to address an area of need. By considering the wider influencing factors, local areas are able to tackle the causes rather than just the symptoms, and really begin to make a difference to the health of their local populations.
