|Competencies for "World Class Commissioning": the readiness of PCTs and PBCs|
|Lead: Angela Bate
University of Newcastle
The objectives of this project are to:
The research will be conducted in three phases to understand, develop, and evaluate commissioning practice. Phase I will use surveys and interviews to build a model of PCT commissioning practice, showing the key relationships involved in commissioning, the structures and processes that are used (including any specific tools), and assessing how well PCTs meet the competencies outlined in commissioning guidance. Phase II will use participatory action research, observing and working alongside the PCT to identify challenges to commissioning, and devise, implement, and review potential improvements. Phase III will repeat the surveys and interviews to evaluate how commissioning has changed over the time of the research.
