Summary: The Joint Commissioning Framework outlines the NHS and local authority framework in which local commissioning strategies will develop. Resources within this framework include:
- a template for joint strategic needs assessments for dementia
- a summary of levers available to commissioners, and
- an outline of how the threads of policy wrap around the needs of people with dementia and their carers.
The Joint Commissioning Framework provides more detailed ‘how to’ and best practice guidance on joint commissioning, drawing together World Class Commissioning and Putting People First, the key driver for social care commissioning. It addresses the responsibilities of PCTs and local authorities to jointly commission services for people with dementia.
