NHS England has today released its 2016 data packs, which are individually tailored for each clinical commissioning group (CCG) and designed to support care transformation.

Commissioning for Value is a partnership between NHS England, Public Health England and NHS RightCare providing the first phase of the RightCare approach to CCGs – where to look.

The support packs include a review of indicative data to highlight the top priorities or value opportunities for transformation and improvement, and are designed to be a source of insight which supports local discussions about effectively using their resources. This includes information about the 10 CCGs that are most similar to the original CCGs population, in order to identify realistic opportunities for improvements.

The information in the packs will be of particular interest to CCG clinical and management leads with responsibility for finance, performance, improvement and health outcomes; to NHS England regional team leads; and to commissioning support teams who are helping CCGs with this work. A range of additional free support to accompany the data is set out within each pack.

In a statement NHS England said that the use of this localised information as part of the annual planning cycle is encouraged.

Paul Baumann, chief financial officer at NHS England, added: “The data and evidence available through tools such as Commissioning for Value will help commissioners make the most important decisions in delivering concrete and sustainable clinical and financial benefits across the NHS.

“We expect that the roll-out of the RightCare programme will drive up the quality of care while contributing significantly to meeting the efficiency challenge set out in the Five Year Forward View,” he added.
