Joint Commissioning Framework
Commissioning is the process of planning, buying, delivering and monitoring public services. Good commissioning is about improving people’s lives and providing high-quality services that are designed around the individual.
Reflecting the way that people use health and social care services,we’re committed to ensuring that the Bassetlaw PCT, Nottinghamshire County Council and NHS Nottinghamshire County work even more closely to jointly plan and deliver better integration of local services.
Our vision is to ensure that Nottinghamshire provides the highest quality, responsive and personalised services that are shaped directly by the people who use them.
We start from a good foundation with recent assessments confirming that adult social services in the county are rated as excellent, our children’s services are achieving good outcomes and we have strong primary care trusts who have delivered widespread improvements in health services.
After extensive work to fully understand the needs of Nottinghamshire’s diverse communities, this document represents the start of responding to that picture. As well as setting out our commitment to joint working and the principles for the future planning of health and social care services, we have set out priorities for action in specific areas of care such as mental health, carer support, older people, physical disability, children’s services, learning disability and autistic spectrum disorder.
