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 period for reviewing these documents was open from 10th July until until Tuesday 8th August 2017 and feedback received during this period is currently being reviewed.

The below consultation documents are therefore currently in draft form.

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

Once the consultation documents have been reviewed, they will 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.
