Influencing commissioning is for anyone who has an interest in how services are planned and commissioned and how the public can all be involved in this. This training programme has been written to bring together patients, carers and health professionals.
The training has been designed to help these audiences to get involved in influencing commissioning, and to help them help others get involved. It was also help to develop the understanding of how Healthwatch can influence commissioning.
This is the second of two sessions I did with 45 volunteers for the MS Society, Making sense of commissioning and the structure of the NHS. This training helps everyone get a better sense of what commissioning is all about. This took place on Friday 26 April.
