IPC collaborates on new model of commissioning
IPC consultants have been working with a group of providers to develop a model of relationship-based commissioning. The model is based on the IPC commissioning model. It focuses on how commissioners can develop good relationships with providers, that result in solutions for developing community-based provision for the transforming care cohort of people with learning disabilities, currently living in inpatient care.
IPC and the group of providers recently tested their relationship-based commissioning model with local authority and Clinical Commissioning Group commissioners. It was a resounding success.
The process of the roundtable discussion worked well and the presentation and model led to a good conversation
IPC will work with the providers and the Local Government Association to publish the model in the next few months.
