Contracting and Comissioning

The Contracts & Commissioning team are responsible for the negotiation, review & control of the clinical services contracts with the Clinical Commissioning Groups and NHS England by ensuring effective & open liaison with both the commissioners and the Trust’s clinical departments. The team liaise with the hospital clinicians to offer new treatments and clinical pathways to the commissioners and then negotiate a fair price for the new services.

We ensure that we are up to date with current NHS Contract guidance and that issues arising from these developments are quickly & accurately implemented across the Trust.
