Overview

Application form: PPV Partner Collaborative Commissioning of Specialised Services - Programme Oversight Group (POG)

NHS England

NHS England is committed to ensuring that public and patient voices are at the centre of shaping our healthcare services. Every level of our commissioning system needs to be informed by insightful methods of listening to those who use and care about our services to inform service development.

There are a range of opportunities for the public, patients, carers and patient representative organisations to get involved in shaping the work of NHS England.  Please see below for our current opportunities.

NHS England Collaborative Commissioning Programme Oversight Group (POG)

The Five Year Forward View set out a vision for the NHS tha empowers patients to take more control over their care. It describes a future which breaks down traditional boundaries between GPs and hospitals, between health and social care, between physical and mental health, and between prevention and treatment.  

To support this vision, the forward view set out the intention to progressively give Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) more influence over the total NHS budget for their local populations. This includes having greater influence over the specialised services that are currently commissioned nationally by NHS England. To support NHS England's ability to collaboratively commission specialised services a national Programme Oversight Group has been set up.

The Programme Oversight Group will have responsibility for ensuring effective transition to new collaborative commissioning arrangements, with the aim of supporting greater involvement by CCGs in decision making and, where appropriate, the delegation of some specialised commissioning functions to a sub-national level.

NHS England is committed to ensuring that public and patient voices are at the centre of shaping our healthcare services. Every level of our commissioning system needs to be informed by insightful methods of listening to those who use and care about our services to inform service development.

Therefore we are now looking for a PPV partner to join the Collaborative Commissioning of Specialised Services Programme Oversight Group.
