Integrated Personal Commissioning involves a voluntary approach to joining-up health and social care for people with complex needs. NHS England, the Local Government Association, Think Local Act Personal and the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services recently invited the submission ideas on building integrated and personalised commissioning for people with complex needs. There is a triple offer to service users, local commissioners and the voluntary sector.
Service users are offered power and support to shape care so it is more meaningful to them.
Local authorities, NHS commissioners and service providers are offered dedicated technical support, plus regulatory and financial flexibilities to facilitate integration.
Voluntary sector organisations are invited to be key partners in designing and co-producing services.
