The Association for Real Change is seeking provider perspectives on commissioning.

We’d like to know your views and hear of your experiences in relation to commissioning and market-development initiatives. We intend to present these, as a member of the Care Provider Alliance, at a personalisation summit in September, to be hosted by Norman Lamb, Minister of State for Care and Support.

The purpose of the summit is to review progress with personalisation, address the key challenges facing providers and commissioners in the context of the difficult financial position, and identify key actions needed for further progress.  There is a particular interest in reviewing the progress of existing commissioning and provider market initiatives which have aimed to increase choice.

This is a prime opportunity to have your views conveyed to the higher levels of government and we would encourage members to engage in the process.

If you have any experiences or opinion you consider relevant, please contact our Chief Executive, Jacqueline Bell at:
