The Commissioning Cycle

The Commissioning cycle must be informed by the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment, Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy and Health Needs Assessments with a golden thread that will maximise the impact on the health and wellbeing of the local population, reduce health inequalities and impact on the inverse care law. Outcome reports are regularly produced and show the impact of action over time, benchmarking is also useful and can assist with service design and commissioning.
