What our priorities are and how we are doing
We held a series of commissioning intentions events with the public to help reach a collaborative decision about our priorities. We also considered the hospital contracts we manage and the demographics of the population we serve. Our priorities for 2014/15 are:
Mental Health, Children and young people, Long term conditions and Improving primary care.
How we make decisions
BSC is a member organisation in every sense; this means local clinicians making local decisions with local people. Our organisation enables members to lead, innovate and make decisions with the communities they serve. From our Member Council and clinically-led Governing Body through to our six local Networks, BSC is designed to give grassroots GPs and practice staff the power to revolutionise commissioning.
We’re transforming engagement and collaboration. The patient is at the heart of everything we do because we believe that meaningful relationships lead to better commissioning. Being patient-centred means the voices and stories of patients shape our plans and priorities. See how you can get involved.
