The Commissioning Support Unit is a vibrant, dynamic and innovative service sector, which provides customer-focused support and choice to clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) and helps them to go the extra mile, by supporting the local focus on improving outcomes and increasing value on behalf of their population.
Commissioning support must enable CCGs to harness techniques, thinking and ways of working from other sectors in order to allow them to deliver best value, timely and evidence based commissioning decisions. In this respect, commissioning support will feel different to current approaches. It will support working differently and will enable those taking commissioning decisions to do so with accuracy and acuity by operating against best practice.
Commissioning support will be an attractive sector for talented staff who will be able to develop expertise and skills as they innovate and have rewarding careers.
