Joint Commissioning Checklist

This joint commissioning checklist is a simple tool which provides local areas with a framework for assessing their progress towards effective joint commissioning arrangements. Aimed at strategic level colleagues, the checklist prompts a RAG rating against key indicators under the following headings:

  • An agreed vision for all partners
  • Clear data
  • A clear strategy, arrangements and governance

Once RAG rating has been completed against each of the subheadings, the tool calculates an overall summary. This can be repeated to provide a progress score for comparisons with the original baseline.

The joint commissioning checklist can be used alongside further CDC resources to support the implementation of an outcomes based approach to commissioning and the proactive use of data.
