Commissioning for quality – delivering national priorities


15 / 02 / 2010

The demands on commissioning are greater than ever before as primary care trusts are relied upon by policymakers and taxpayers to improve health and health services, assure quality and deliver value for money in an NHS faced with more stringent financial circumstances and increasing public scrutiny.

This Briefing highlights some actions commissioners can take to ensure they secure best value for patients and taxpayers when commissioning for two NHS priorities in 2010/11: delivering same-sex accommodation (DSSA) as part of the thrust towards high-quality care; and improving cleanliness and further reducing healthcare associated infections (HCAI).
