About The Commissioning Show
CCGs will be forced to adapt and work more collaboratively if they are to secure their future in an ever-more complex health and care system. The focus has shifted away from activity-based commissioning to place-based commissioning with both commissioners and providers of health and social care working towards a common goal of transforming services and health outcomes for populations and patients.
For CCGs to secure their future and continue to add value to the health and social care system, it is imperative they work closely with the full range of NHS providers, local authorities, public health, private and voluntary sector organisations, local communities and individuals to redesign care pathways around the patients and populations they serve.
To reflect this new shared purpose and collaborative culture, we are pleased to announce that for the first time in 2016, The Commissioning Show – the leading national conference for clinical commissioners - will be fully incorporated into the Health+Care Show. CCGs will not just have more opportunities to join forces with the 9,000-strong community of health and social care professionals who descend on EXCEL each year to network, disseminate best practice and tackle shared challenges.
The Commissioning Show will still very much be the home for CCGs, where there will still be a world class dedicated multi-streamed programme packed with ideas and innovations you can implement locally to get the best health outcomes for your communities and patients.
The NHS has been presented with a huge opportunity to turn itself around with the £3.8 billion for 2016/17 awarded by the Chancellor in the Spending Review. However, subsequent years will be much leaner, begging the question that with spiralling deficits, adult social care on the verge of collapse and £22 billion of savings to find, will the £3.8 billion be enough to dig the NHS out of its current financial crisis?
Don’t miss this valuable opportunity to come together with stakeholders from across health and social care to tackle these big issues for the sake of populations, patients and the future of the system.
