This is a practical book for both new and established practitioners who want to gain understanding of the process of commissioning, or those who already contribute to the commissioning of health and social care services. It helps to de-mystify the process and provide insight into the commissioning cycle and with useful learning outcomes, definitions, exercises and reflections for each chapter. Reading this evidence based systematic approach to commissioning will help those involved understand the process of planning and resourcing to improve outcomes for people.
(Jane Quigley, Programme Leader Health and Social Care Commissioning, University of Chester)
A useful resource which is packed with good examples. Students will be able to apply the exercises to their own organisation when asked to reflect on current practice.
