28 January 2010

The Health Committee holds the third evidence session of its inquiry into Commissioning. Watch live at 10.00 am

Witnesses

The Committee's 'Commissioning' inquiry is investigating:

  • "World-Class Commissioning": what does this initiative tell us about how effective commissioning by PCTs is?
  • The rationale behind commissioning: has the purchaser / provider split been a success and is it needed?
  • Commissioning and "system reform": how does commissioning fit with Practice-based Commissioning, "contestability" and the quasi-market, and Payment by Results?
  • Specialist commissioning
  • Commissioning for the quality and safety of services
