Commissioning Strategy

As a part of its annual commissioning cycle, the IWCCG has developed its first Commissioning Strategy setting out its priorities for 2012-2014.

Between November 2011 – January 2012 our proposed priority areas were put out for public consultation and a number of workshops with the Third Sector undertaken. These workshops were informed by our Commissioning Intentions.

Feedback was collated into our Consultation Response document and reflected in our final strategy. You can download a copy of the IWCCG Commissioning Strategy here.

Following consultation and further development, the final IWCCG priority areas are:

General Priorities (overarching within all strategic priority areas):

  • Self-help and support
  • Carers
  • Case management
  • Integrated care
  • Assistive technology
  • Workforce development

Strategic Priorities:

  • Long Term Conditions
  • Mental Health
  • Dementia
  • Frail Older People
  • Urgent Care

These priorities inform the CCG Commissioning Intentions which reflect how the CCG will deliver against its ambitions within the commissioning cycle. A copy of the final Commisisoning Intentions can be downloaded here.

To direct delivery of these priority areas and guide the organisation in achieving ambitions the IWCCG has also produced an Operational Plan.

The IWCCG have collated all its commissioning ambitions into a Integrated Commissioning Plan 2012-14 (also known as a ‘Plan on a Page’), this can be downloaded here.

Patient and members of the public are able to participate by completing and returning a patient experience questionnaire, found in our Get Involved section.
