The future of commissioning

NHS Providers has launched a new publication series “Provider Voices” which promotes the views of leaders from a range of trusts and other parts of the service on some of the key issues facing the NHS.


The first report Where next for commissioning? includes eight interviews that address concerns including the role of Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships (STPs) and accountable care systems (ACSs), the challenge of integrating health and care commissioning, and the future of the purchaser-provider split.



Bite-size guides on patient insight

NHS England has launched two further bite-size guides to patient insight to help CCGs and providers make better use of national surveys and feedback data and to plan their own local insight work to inform service reviews and redesigns | NHS England


We want to help providers and commissioners to understand the use of patient insight better and to use it effectively in delivering local services.  Publications on this page are designed to help build understanding and skills in this area and we will add new topics over time.
