Health Service Planning

These teaching modules introduce you to the competencies that will support the commissioning and planning of services, maximising patient outcomes within available resources and determining how to make difficult commissioning decisions. The best workshop format for these modules is one where commissioners, GPs, hospital clinicians, local authority and all other key stakeholders learn together.

The modules provide a set of PowerPoint slides with facilitator notes as well as a planning guide for setting up a course. The materials can be used in a facilitated workshop format or for personal learning or for continuous professional development.
