Firstly happy new year to you and a warm welcome to the first edition of the Attain Commercial Update in 2016 which provides you insights into the recent developments within health and care. We aim to keep you informed and up to date wherever possible, sharing relevant news and leading edge approaches.
We are delighted to launch a new feature in the Procurement section; a summary of recent major contract awards which will add further insight to our regular updates.
This month’s commercial update covers: planning guidance for 2016/17 (including transformation plans and resource allocations),Vanguard site support, Place based systems of care, RightCare programme, and transformation of healthcare services across London.
We also include latest summaries on the Five Year Forward View, the Kings Fund, the Spending Review, and autumn statement, agency costs and the NHS Five year settlement.
