Toolkit for NHS commissioners and chief executives to help commission better outcomes for people with COPD.
The chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) commissioning toolkit is for NHS commissioners and chief executives. It aims to make it easier to commission better outcomes for people with COPD by bringing together the clinical, financial and commercial aspects of commissioning in one place.
The COPD commissioning toolkit is issued as part of the suite of tools and resources to help to implement the Outcomes Strategy for COPD and Asthma and NHS Companion Document. The commissioning toolkit is not mandatory but is designed to help implement and reflect existing guidelines and meet the needs of local people and communities.
