////Supporting commissioners with new contract negotiations

Supporting commissioners with new contract negotiations

Three CCGs in north and east London had concerns over quality and financial performance as part of their annual renegotiations with a local NHS trust and needed to review their quality, performance and renegotiation procedures.

We supported the conversion of the CCGs’ commissioning intentions into a detailed negotiation strategy, based on sound technical analysis of their requirements and an understanding of the opportunities and risks of a range of approaches. We made recommendations on the planning for and structure of negotiations and provided practical support and technical advice throughout the process.

The agreed contract released £2.5 million in savings

The resulting agreement reflected the CCGs’ commissioning intentions. Delivery to these performance improvements equated to a cost saving of £2.5 million for commissioners, providing stability to the local health economy and supporting the trust while it resolved significant operational and performance issues.
