THE COMMISSIONING SHOW

THE COMMISSIONING SHOW NOW FULLY PART OF HEALTH+CARE

 

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. Commissioning Show 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.

    British Red Cross
  • As a GP this event gives me the opportunity to meet people from all sectors, to network and to get some new ideas.
    Dr Anna Wilton
    GP and Dementia Lead, Lewisham CCG
  • People should come to this conference because it is a big one. There are huge variety of things going on here and it is also an opportunity to network and meet people and find out about all the innovative things that are going on around the country. Delegates should go home with ideas that challenge their existing thinking.
    Dr Phil Moore
    Deputy Chair. Kingston CCG
  • I’m new to commissioning and somebody recommended that I should come to this conference and I haven’t been disappointed. The topics are relevant to the work I am leading on – diabetes and long term conditions and the whole agenda around health and social care. The variety of talks is good and I am picking up lots of ideas.
    Andrea Cronin
    Commissioner for Thurrock CCG
  • The speakers are excellent and the talks have been inspiring. This event is both an opportunity to get ideas and hear what other people are doing and also gives us some reassurance that we are doing things well. We will be cascading what we have learned to our colleagues when we go back.
    Martin Garvett
    Director of Housing and Care Enham Trust
  • This conference is good fun, there are lots of important opinion formers here. I enjoyed giving my presentation about our experience of providing extended availability of general practice to our population and achieving a reduction in A&E activities as a result. This quite a controversial topic, however opinion seems to be changing so it’s quite a good barometer to be able to talk to an audience of 150- 200 people to see where the temperature lies.
    Dr Ivan Benett
    Clinical Director, Central Manchester CCG
  • This is a real opportunity for people to connect but this even more the case at the Health + Care Show compared with other conferences, simply because of the size and scale of the event. This is an extremely interesting and very good conference and very relevant for integrated care, which I am involved with. Compared to other conferences it’s free and provides a great opportunity to do lots of networking.

    Programme Lead for Integrated Care, Lincolnshire East CCG

    Jane Mulholland
    Commissioning Director, Gateshead CCG
  • When you work in London sometimes you are just ploughing on in your own little silo and can forget about the rest of the world so this conference is a chance to come out and network and meet the people who are doing exciting and innovative things. Health + Care is well organised and there are always good speakers.
    Therese Fletcher
    Assistant Director of Primary and Community Care, Lambeth CCG
