Health Select Committee Report Calls for Joined Up Commissioning
Created on 09 February 2012
Written by IJH
The Health Select Committee
has concluded that older people are being let down by fragmented care services and has recommended that the key to joined up services is joined up commissioning.
The Committee has recommended that the Government should place a duty on new clinical commissioning groups and local councils to create a single commissioning process and a single outcomes framework for older people's health, care and housing services.
On 2 July 2012 the BGS is holding a joint conference with ADASS which will focus on commissioning services for older people.
