Please note this is not part of any tendering process, this is early engagement in co-designing Cornwall’s Integrated Commissioning Strategy for children, young people and their families. This event makes no commitment to procure any services and is not part of any pre-qualification or selection process.

One Vision sets the foundation which the NHS, Cornwall Council and the Council for the Isles of Scilly will use to bring together health and care services for children, young people and their families.

During phase one we shared details of our ambition to improve services through our Partnership Plan, we now need to develop these plans to change the way people in health and care work together and people access services to ensure every child and young person is safe, healthy and has equal chances in accessing opportunities to achieve a brighter future.

Following our engagement workshops with health, care, education and voluntary and community sector colleagues in February 2018 the One Vision Executive, at its meeting on 24 January 2019, and the One Vision Partnership, at its meeting on 5 February 2019, approved the Framework for Service Design for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

This Framework document aims to build on the One Vision Partnership Plan’s five core outcomes, and principles for working together to transform the system of services for children and young people, design and plan future services together. These are co-production; quality; efficiency and effectiveness; outcome focussed; and early help.

This Framework aims to set out more detail about how we will design and plan service changes together going forward so that we can ensure a better integrated approach to better meet the education, health and care needs of our children and young people.  The allocation of resources happens at a commissioner level and the deployment of resources takes place at a provider level so it is essential that we have alignment between the priorities of commissioners and providers through a clear set of agreed principles.  This framework is therefore intended to govern the relationships and processes across all contributors to the service offer under an enhanced One Vision Executive Board.

Within this we have also set out an asset place-based approach to the planning, transformation and commissioning of services, recognising in particular the people we have working with children, young people, families and their community. This framework provides a place in which they clearly see their role and influence over the design and delivery of services.

We are working with our colleagues in health, the voluntary sector and interested stakeholders to shine a light on new and emerging practice to support us in working creatively towards new solutions that make a real difference in people’s lives. We are working innovatively to create a toolkit that will set out a core approach to commissioning services and develop a suite of supporting tools to enable us, in collaboration with our commissioning partners, to deliver best outcomes for people through excellent practice in commissioning.
