World Class Commissioning

Practical Commissioning's Jargon Buster explains the meaning of the term 'World Class Commissioning'.

This is the DH process to achieve a commissioning system that is the envy of the world.

The strategy is being implemented through a world class commissioning assurance system which will assess whether commissioning processes are fit for purpose.

PCTs are assessed on outcomes, competencies and governance.

The assurance system began in 2007 but PCT results ready at the end of 2008 were not made public. The 2009 ‘results' are due out in April 2010.
