New PG Certificate for CCG leads (in association with NHS Clinical Commissioners) being launched in January 2013

NHS Clinical Commissioners logoFollowing the passage of the Health and Social Care Act, this new Postgraduate Certificate in Healthcare Commissioning is designed specifically for clinical commissioners, all those involved in new CCGs and emerging commissioning support organisations. Badged by NHS Clinical Commissioners, there is a discount available to all NHSCC members. 

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.

PG Certificate in Healthcare CommissioningThe 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
