About The Commissioning Show - Whatever your role in the healthcare sector - you'll find support, advice and the tools to succeed here
The Commissioning Show is the best place to keep track of the evolution of CCGs, trusts, social and primary care and to be empowered with the knowledge you need to ensure your organisation stakes its claim in the new healthcare system.
The event sits at the vibrant heart of the Health+Care Show, bringing together senior representatives from more than 90% of CCGs, thousands of senior trust professionals and leaders across social and primary care. Just as Health+Care draws in the entire health and care community to network and spread best practice, the Commissioning Show is a rare opportunity for clinical commissioners to gather en masse to collaborate and share innovative ideas, approaches and solutions.
The new world order of STPs and accountable care systems is turning the commissioner-provider relationship on its head. Going forward, the focus will be on planning and delivering health and care for larger, more diverse populations within huge geographical footprints of 1.2 million that engulf multiple CCGs. We are seeing the emergence of large, complex provider organisations with the capacity to take on high-value, long-term contracts that may be viewed as a threat to CCGs. However, astute clinical commissioners will see this period of rapid change as an opportunity for CCGs to rally, regroup, contract out some of their statutory functions and carve out a far more strategic role. In their first three years, CCGs have increasingly developed a strong place-based, clinically-focussed understanding of population need. The Commissioning Show – launched as CCGs came into being – celebrates this local knowledge and recognises that CCGs are well-placed to come up with effective solutions for patients as a result.
