Although fully tailored to the current policy context, the PG Certificate builds on previous successful programmes such as the MSc in Healthcare Commissioning delivered for NHS London and NHS West Midlands, the UK’s first MSc in Public Service Commissioning (delivered jointly with the Institute of Local Government Studies) and a series of local and regional commissioning development programmes delivered throughout the country. Aimed at both clinicians and managers, these previous programmes have been consistently positively evaluated, and feedback suggests they help those in commissioning roles to understand what commissioning is, where it has come from, where it might be taking us and how to do it differently and better.
The programme consists of three modules:
• Strategic commissioning - 28-29 January and 13-15 February 2013
• Procurement and market management - 29 April-1 May and 21 May-22 May 2013
• Decision-making and priority-setting – 1-3 July and 29-30 July 2013
For those wishing to find out more about the work of HSMC and about the programme, we will be running a free introductory workshop on Monday 3 December 2012.
