Commissioning for a better future: useful resources

Research and key trends in relation to commissioning across health and social care.

Examples of research covering integration, the value of communities, importance of population and place, commissioning which reflects complexity but provides flexibility, collaboration and coproduction, evidence-based investment and decommissioning, valuing and motivating the workforce.

Helpful in moving away from rules-based commissioning. Useful to adult social care commissioners but can be used by anyone who is interested in commissioning to achieve better outcomes for people.
