During the day delegates from all sectors will consider how to respond to the commissioning environment more effectively by engaging and empowering service users, communities and policy makers alike.

A range of quality speakers will also offer examples of innovative commissioning approaches and service delivery models that demonstrate the integral value of commissioning.
