Commissioning (pre-March 2011)

Mental health commissioning publications

The 2009/10 programme saw the completion of two products developed in conjunction with the National Mental Health Development Unit (NMHDU).

Mental health commissioners’ development

We ran the London Mental Health Commissioner’s Network, a pan-London group for lead mental health commissioners from London’s primary care trusts and their teams to meet and discuss important developments in commissioning policy and legislation, to share best practice and discuss any early learning.


Network was our regular bulletin. The first edition was published in August 2009.

Briefing notes

We have developed a series of briefing notes on a range of topics that mental health commissioners may find useful for comparison and benchmarking against other primary care trusts.
