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.

Creation of the toolkits

The toolkits 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 will 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

Extended Care PGD Services

This is the second published toolkit and is intended to support the commissioning of Extended Care PGD Services.

Further resources will be added in due course to support LPCs and their local commissioners with the implementation of Extended Care Services where these are commissioned.

The below documents constitute the Extended Care PGD Service toolkit (published October 2021):
