Interviews and case studies concerning effective commissioning to achieve 18 week pathways

Interviews and case studies concerning effective commissioning to achieve 18 week pathways
The NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement to undertook a scoping study into effective commissioning for the 18 week pathway. This was undertaken to inform the development of ideas and initiatives which can be implemented by the NHS Institute to support commissioners in achieving 18 weeks. There were two main areas of data collection and analysis. These were a literature review and telephone interviews with:
• representatives of primary care trusts responsible for commissioning and/or achieving the 18 week wait
• practice based commissioners
• a range of key individuals within NHS organisations who are involved in some way in assisting primary care trusts (PCTs) and practice based commissioners (PBCs) to achieve the 18 week wait.
For the purposes of this report, these people have been called ‘influencers'. Twenty interviews were conducted: nine with influencers; nine with PCTs (two of which were extended to become case studies) and two with PBCs. This report concerns the findings from the interviews.
