Abstract

This summary presents key findings from the second phase of the evaluation of the Care Services Improvement Partnership (CSIP). Phase Two was carried out by
researchers from King’s College London and the University of Swansea between
December 2007 and February 2008. This study was commissioned by the
Department of Health and comprised: (1) a knowledge review of the evidence base
underpinning the care commissioning tools and guidance produced by CSIP and; (2) qualitative interviews with 25 commissioners working in local councils and Primary Care Trusts (PCTs).
The overall aim was to explore how CSIP’s Commissioning Programme supports
change across delivery agencies, focussing on one product in particular, the
‘Commissioning eBook’. The ‘Commissioning eBook’ is described as a resource to
improve commissioning of community services and it is expected that commissioners will shape and contribute to it.
