Commissioning Toolkit Programme

Commissioning Toolkit Programme

As part of PSNC’s work to support LPCs to get local services commissioned and to ensure services are costed correctly, PSNC is developing template toolkits for a range of locally commissioned services, the first of which is for Minor Ailment Services.

Creation of the toolkits

The toolkits will contain a number of resources to assist with the commissioning of a service, for example, a costing toolkit; a business case; service specification; implementation plan; and resources to notify local GP practices about the commissioning of a new service.

As part of this work, PSNC is seeking external input from interested parties, in particular from service commissioners and LPCs. We hope that this inclusive approach will help enhance the contents of the toolkits and raise awareness of them, resulting in increased uptake by commissioners.

Minor Ailment Service - consultation documents

The first toolkit to be produced is to support the commissioning and implementation of a Minor Ailment Service.

The consultation process for reviewing these documents is now open until Tuesday 8th August 2017. The documents are therefore currently in draft form.

PSNC would welcome feedback on the consultation documents to ensure these are as useful as possible for LPCs and commissioners.


1. Read the following consultation documents

The following documents/web page have also been produced which support the consultation documents:

2. Provide feedback

The feedback form must be used to provide comments.

If you only want to comment on certain consultation documents, please only complete the relevant tables in the feedback form.

Please send any feedback to 

Deadline: Tuesday 8th August 2017. Feedback received after this deadline may not be reviewed.

3. Next steps

All feedback received will be reviewed and consideration given to amending the consultation documents. The consultation documents will then be published as final versions and will be available for use. PSNC will advise when the final versions of these documents are available through their normal communication channels.
