Integrated. Personal. Commissioning.

IPCMy current work is on the Integrated Personal Commissioning (IPC) programme, working for Think Local Act Personal and very closely with NHS England.

A natural question to ask is “What’s that?”, and it’s a very good question.

Before answering that, though, I think there are questions we should ask before, such as:

  • “What do we mean by ‘integrated’, ‘personal’ and ‘commissioning’?”
  • “What difference do each make?”

Over the next couple of weeks I’m therefore going to write 3 posts on each of these topics, and for each I’m going to try and answer those questions.

Each post will be a very quick way into the issue, sharing information that I’ve found useful in my own learning. None will be in any way comprehensive! Thus, if there are things you’d like to add to each post or disagree with, feel free to do so in the comments or on Twitter. I’ll update the posts accordingly.
