Move to system working will provide opportunities for strategic commissioning

23 May 2019

Responding to The changing face of clinical commissioning published by NHS Clinical Commissioners, the director of policy and strategy at NHS Providers, Miriam Deakin said:

“This report provides an interesting and forward-looking exploration of the role of commissioning within the context of system working.

Commissioners and providers will need to work differently and most importantly in partnership with one another and other local health and care organisations.

“Delivering the NHS long term plan will mean that commissioners and providers will need to work differently and most importantly in partnership with one another and other local health and care organisations.

“It is clear that there are opportunities for more strategic commissioning across a larger population base, providing better value and becoming more outcomes driven.”

“This in turn creates opportunities for the role providers could play within their local health and care system with scope for NHS providers to take on some of the activities that commissioners currently deliver, and to develop more collaborative approaches with their colleagues in commissioning.”
