THE COMMISSIONING SHOW

THE COMMISSIONING SHOW IS PART OF HEALTH+CARE

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. 

Hot topics for 2017

The Commissioning Show 2017, with its dedicated lecture theatre and programme for clinical commissioners, will bring you a lively agenda of keynotes, debates, case studies, interactive workshops and Q&A sessions covering all the crucial issues for your CCG. You will hear from top CCG representatives and other high profile speakers from across the system. Hot topics for 2017 include: the role of CCGs in delivering STPs and enabling the creation of New Care Models; balancing CCG finances; implementing the GP Forward View and the Forward View for Mental Health, the new CCG Improvement and Assessment Framework; how to procure for unique and complex contracts without creating your own ‘Uniting Care’ disaster and how NHS RightCare can deliver greater value in commissioning.

You will also learn from a wealth of case studies evidencing how CCGs are adapting to the changing NHS landscape with expert advice on CCG merger and examples of CCGs that are successfully collaborating and working across boundaries.

Access the entire Health+Care agenda

Delegates attending the Commissioning Show 2017 can also access the entire Health+Care agenda as well. We would encourage you to attend the conferences’ Sustainability through Transformation Hub, delivered in partnership with NHS England and the New Care Models programme team, to be updated on the most advanced New Care Models and STPs, many of which are being driven by clinical commissioners.  The Digital Healthcare show, that is also co-located at Health+Care 2017, will feature case studies on how CCGs and providers are harnessing technology to drive out inefficiencies and improve patient care.

Attending the Commissioning Show will give you a broad overview of how CCGs are evolving, the opportunities, challenges and inspired solutions. You will have a rare chance to network with CCG leaders from across the system, forge new partnerships and understand how your CCG can adopt a more strategic role going forward.
