Commissioning is the process by which local authorities look at local needs and decide how to spend their money to get the best possible outcome for individuals and communities.
Our Adult Social Care policies, commissioning strategies and market position statements set out the desired outcomes and the approaches to achieving these.
How do we do it?
Residents, carers and partners are at the heart of our commissioning cycle. They are involved at all stages and we make sure that people's views and experiences are heard, taken into account and strongly influence how we get the best possible services: we call this co-design.
