Members of the Attain commissioning team were recently in attendance at a two day conference held in Leeds, the home of the new NHS England. Commissioning Live 2013 was held at the Royal Armouries on Wednesday 20th and Thursday 21st March and was supported by NHS England as well as the Family Doctor Association and the Royal College of GPs. Speakers included Dame Barbara Hakin, NHS Commissioning Czar, David Bennet, Chief Executive of Monitor and Mike Farrar Chief Executive of the NHS Confederation.
Members of the Attain team were located on stand 24 in the exhibitor’s hall and answered questions on commissioning support requirements including Commissioning Development, Service Redesign, Procurement and Contract Management. The team explained how Attain helps NHS Commissioning Support Services organisations and GP Clinical Commissioning Groups transition to, and succeed in, the new NHS landscape.
Attendees were interested to hear about Attain’s fresh approach to delivery of all aspects of the commissioning cycle, from understanding local health needs, designing patient pathways, procuring services and managing provider contracts, achieved by applying deep service knowledge and commercial acumen.
Team members met with a range of commissioners across the health and social care landscape including GPs, CCG and CSU members of staff. Attendees were very interested in understanding Attains approach and hearing about our recent successful delivery of commissioning projects.
Attendees were provided with Attain’s service offer pack, which is available [link] on the website.
