NICE Support for commissioning - supporting quality improvement and service redesign

NICE Support for commissioning helps commissioners to work with, clinicians and managers to commission high-quality evidence-based care. Commissioning care in line with NICE quality standards and guidance should enable commissioners to be confident that the services they are commissioning are cost-effective and focussed on driving up quality.

Commissioning high quality, cost effective and value based care should improve health and social care outcomes. When planning for health improvement and the associated health outcomes or for comparative information for patients and the public about the quality of health services commissioned by clinical commissioning groups, commissioners should refer to the clinical commissioning group outcome indicator set.

NICE Support for commissioning are web-based resources supporting quality improvement and service redesign. Support for commissioning also signposts to other implementation support tools to assist with quality improvement and provides information on key clinical, cost and service-related issues to consider during the commissioning process. Each Commissioning Support contains a commissioning and benchmarking tool, which is a resource that can be used to estimate and inform the level of service needed locally as well as the cost of local commissioning decisions.

The NICE Commissioning resources page signposts to NICE products of value to commissioners, including NICE Pathways, Referral advice, Cost savings, NICE ‘do not do' recommendations database, Social Value Judgements and the NICE field team.

NICE Support for commissioning accompany NICE quality standards and are available on the home page for each published quality standard.
