Working in partnership with our host, the Arden and Greater East Midlands Commissioning Support Unit, SPH produced Deep Dive Packs, building on the NHS England, Right Care and Public Health England ‘Commissioning for Value Packs’. These focused on specific programme areas, such as cancer, respiratory, musculo-skeletal, diabetes or trauma. Combining data analysis and expert public health commentary, the Deep Dive packs identify specific areas where focused action might lead to improved outcomes and / or reduced costs. SPH also facilitated workshops with individual clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) to explore the outputs in more detail and discuss potential follow-on service redesign opportunities.
