Commissioning for
A programme to help CCGs identify
value opportunities and improve
healthcare for their populations
September 2013
What is Commissioning for Value?
Commissioning for Value is about identifying priority
programmes which offer the best opportunities to improve
healthcare for your populations; improving the value that
patients receive from their healthcare and improving the
value that populations receive from investment in their local
health system.
“Value in any field must be defined around the
customer, not the supplier. Value must also be
measured by outputs, not inputs. Hence it is
patient health results that matter, not the
volume of services delivered. But results are
achieved at some cost. Therefore, the proper
objective is… patient health outcomes relative
to the total cost (inputs). Efficiency, then, is
subsumed in the concept of value. ”

What is Commissioning for Value?
In his Dear Colleague letter to the NHS of 10 October – Planning for a sustainable
NHS, Sir David Nicholson set out ten key points to support planning for a
sustainable NHS. The letter included information about the ‘Commissioning for
Value’ packs for CCGs to help you identify where there is greatest opportunity to
improve outcomes.
The packs aim to help identify real opportunities for improvement of outcomes and
to increase value for local populations. The localised information will support
discussions about prioritising areas for change, utilising resources and will help you
as local leaders make improvements in healthcare quality, outcomes and efficiency.
They are also the first product CCGs will receive as part of the new planning round
for commissioners - a vital part of NHS England’s ‘Call to Action’ where everyone is
being encouraged to take an active part in ensuring a sustainable future for the

The approach - where to look...using indicative data
The Commissioning for
Value approach begins
with a review of indicative
data to highlight the top
priorities (opportunities)
for transformation and
This is achieved using
Programme Budgeting
Marginal Analysis and
Spend and Outcome data
to highlight those clinical
programmes where the
health economy is an
outlier and therefore will
be most likely to yield the
most improvements to
clinical pathways and
Bespoke Commissioning for Value insights packs CCGs
By mid-October, we will deliver bespoke
Commissioning for Value packs to all
211 CCGs, with an offer of follow-up
events and support.
These packs will have triangulated data
for the top Programme Budget
Categories by spend for your population
and will suggest priority programme
areas which offer the best value

governance arrangements
• Delivers statutory functions efficiently, effectively and economically
• Procures high quality support as required to meet the business
Two follow-up events for CCGs…
To support CCGs in making use of the insight packs, two follow-up events were
organised for CCGs and their partners. The events were designed to:
• understand what the insight packs are telling you about your population health
• how to use the insights in the packs to direct your improvement efforts
• learn from early adopters who have successfully used this approach to deliver
• get face to face support in surgeries where your insight packs can be
discussed on an individual, CCG basis
• network with commissioning support services who can help you to move
The presentation for these events are now online at:
