The 'How' of Integrated Commissioning
In September 2014, the independent Commission on the Future of Health and Social Care in England, established by The King’s Fund, called for the introduction of a ‘single local commissioner’ framework to replace the existing fragmented landscape of health and social care commissioning. This latest report looks at how single local commissioners, backed by integrated ring-fenced budgets, could be implemented across the country by 2020 - without the need for top-down organisational upheaval.

Exercise: The miracle cure and the role of the doctor in promoting it (produced by Academy of Medical Royal Colleges) (February 2015)
The big four “proximate” causes of preventable ill-health are: smoking, poor nutrition, lack of physical activity and alcohol excess. Relatively low levels of increased activity can make a huge difference. All the evidence suggests small amounts of regular exercise (five times a week for 30 minutes each time for adults) brings dramatic benefits. The exercise should be moderate – enough to get a person slightly out of breath and/or sweaty, and with an increased heart rate. This report is a thorough review of that evidence.
This report sets out what doctors can do on a one-to-one basis and in a broader way with communities and organisations, including their own as many doctors are themselves employers. This is about people and their doctors believing that the small effort involved is worth it because they are worth it. This needs to work across the life-course, from children to the very elderly.

Care Quality Commision (CQC) Intelligent Monitoring for NHS GP practices
The Intelligent Monitoring (IM) tool has been developed to give CQC a clearer understanding of each provider, which informs their inspectors where they should inspect, and what to focus on during an inspection. It will assist them when planning the inspection programme for NHS GP practices. The tool draws on existing and established national data sources, and includes indicators covering a range of activity in GP practices and the experiences of patients. The indicators relate to the five key questions that we will ask of all services when they inspect: are they safe, effective, caring, responsive, and well-led. The IM tool for local GP Practices can be viewed here
MyNHS presented by NHS Choices
Making NHS data transparent will help to drive up quality and create even better services.
At this website you can see key data used by the NHS and local councils to monitor performance and shape the services you use. NHS Choices will add to the information, listen to what you want, and work to make it as clear as possible. Visit the website here
NHS England and PHE have also produced an interactive version of the Commissioning for Value packs.
There are two views of the data:
- The Commissioning for Value Tool allows users to view maps, charts and tables for the indicators in the packs across CCGs, and to view a spine chart of all the indicators for one or more CCGs.
- The Commissioning for Value Explorer allows the user to explore the relationships between two indicators using maps and scatter plots.
You can also get access to a wide range of support resources direct from the Right Care website. The Health Investment Network also contains a comprehensive range of tools to support the ‘deep dive’ process
JSNA support for GPs and Practices
This page of the Wirral JSNA website has been created specifically for GPs and Practice Staff to access information in the JSNA and then onto additional information on a number of subjects that are part of the Practice Performance Framework.
These new support documents carry a range of information that adds greater depth to that already known by GPs and Practice Staff and will help you to consider other options, ideas and solutions through further local and national evidence and wider good practice.
The documents are available via hyperlink from the 'Top 10 diagnostics' reports received by practices and will inform service planning and provision. With this immediate access to the content and JSNA webpages it will further enhance the decision making processes made at practice and consortia level.
