Commissioning for Health and Well-being  

Penny Spring is a Consultant in Public Health at Nottinghamshire County PCT. Penny presented from a commissioner perspective, and highlighted the context in which public health commissioning is now taking place and the challenges presented by this. The key issues addressed were the challenges in involving lay people in public health and the opportunities that the new commissioning framework might bring. Penny gave a brief description of the commissioning process and current issues, such as World Class Commissioning, NHS reorganisation and the commissioner/provider split. Penny raised key challenges, including limited sharing of good practice, lack of evidence and ineffective third sector commissioning. Penny provided suggested possible ‘next steps’ for commissioning to support lay people in public health, highlighting World Class Commissioning as an opportunity to do things differently.
