How will an LGA and NHS Commissioners commissioning framework affect your customers?
The Local Government Association has launched the integrated commissioning for better outcomes framework 2018.
The LGA says the framework, developed jointly with NHS Commissioners, will act as a tool for local authorities and clinical commissioning groups to support integrated commissioning.
The framework has nine standards, designed to support continuous improvement, under three domains:
- person centred and outcome focused
- promotes a sustainable and diverse market
While standards are primarily designed for use by commissioners in adult social care and the NHS, it should also be helpful for providers of services, people with personal budgets and other stakeholders.
