Collaborative Commissioning Support Case Studies

These case studies describe new ways of working and impact achieved through ihub support. This summary highlights work to support commissioning practices in East Dunbartonshire, East Ayrshire, and Orkney.

The collaborative form of commissioning described here...

  • is led locally and involves communities, 
  • achieves collaboration and coproduction with independent and third sector partners, and
  • enables positive outcomes for individuals and systems.

Health and Social Care Partnerships (HSCPs) requested support from the ihub early in the process of commissioning development. Support provided was developed based on mutual dialogue between the ihub, HSCPs and their local partners, and included presentations, facilitated discussion, and group work.

Key impact of ihub support included improved prospects for the initiation and momentum of commissioning work, improvements in facilitated dialogue and improved ability to co-design solutions with local stakeholders.
