Commissioning is core business for PHNs and is guided by a national PHN Commissioning Framework. The Framework describes commissioning as a cycle starting with the assessment of health needs and annual planning; the co-design of solutions to address those needs; the procurement of services and implementation of co-designed solutions; and finally the monitoring of performance and evaluation of impact – which in turn informs subsequent assessment and planning processes.
For GCPHN, commissioning provides a strategic approach to planning, and supporting the allocation of limited resources to programs and services that will best meet the needs of our local community.
“Commissioning is a continual and iterative cycle involving the development and implementation of services based on planning, procurement, monitoring and evaluation. Commissioning describes a broad set of linked activities, including needs assessment, priority setting, service design and procurement through contracts, monitoring of service delivery, and review and evaluation.” PHN Planning in a Commissioning Environment – A Guide
