Commissioning in an era of CCGs

HSMC are providing a series of development programmes for staff at NHS Somerset to help them reflect upon and prepare for future changes to the commissioning landscape. As current PCT staff prepare to transfer to emerging consortia or to focus on commissioning support for the new CCGs, there has never been a more important time for people to be clear what commissioning is, where it has come from, what it means and where it might take us.

This development programme - for junior and senior staff - builds on HSMC's track record in running commissioning development programmes for clinicians and managers in a range of areas of the country (including for NHS London, NHS West Midlands and the Welsh NHS).
