Launch of Wales National Commissioning Board Guidance

Anfonwyd ar ran CLLC/ Sent on behalf of WLGA

The Minister for Children & Social Services launched two documents developed by the National Commissioning Board at the ADSS Autumn Seminar last week. The first concerns the Good Practice Guidance in relation to commissioning services for people with learning disabilities. This is meant to be overarching high level guidance which will be supplemented by more detailed guidance with examples of good practice in relation to specific service areas beginning with supported living services. Other services will be covered as part of a future work program. Hopefully it provides a clear sense of direction for service development. A Welsh language version has been prepared but will need some changes to the format. English and Welsh translations of the Easy Read version will be available shortly. These will be forwarded in due course.

The second document concerns a Practice Guide in Leading Integrated and Collaborative Commissioning. We hope this will be a useful tool for regional partnership boards to help them assess where there are in relation to integrated commissioning (where this appropriate) and develop their plans for the future. This was a document requested by Carol.

We hope that you will find these useful. I would be grateful if you distribute these to your colleagues.
