Commissioning the Future: workshop materials

This series of five workshop scenarios have been designed to help those involved in strategic commissioning to rehearse and explore new ways in which the public care market might develop.

The Commissioning the Future pack offers all those involved in strategic commissioning - including providers of services, people, carers and commissioning officers - an opportunity to:

  • Rehearse the issues they face
  • Do this outside the context of a particular negotiation, contract or agreement.
  • Play different roles than they do in 'real life' to explore issues from a range of perspectives

Each exercise represents real issues faced by all involved in commissioning public care and will support commissioners, providers and people who use services and carers to adopt the key skills and behaviours advocated in Stronger Partnerships for Better Outcomes: a protocol for market relations (opens new window).
