Calderdale CCG has an overall budget allocation of £312million to “commission” or buy, health and care services.  The CCG wanted to talk to local communities to gather ideas on how the CCG can reduce waste and save money whilst keeping the high quality services we need and; how we can reduce our spending on pharmacy services. The engagement process was delivered to help the CCG understand local communities’ views, comments and ideas on two specific areas.  The areas were:

  • How the CCG could reduce waste and save money whilst keeping high quality services that were needed
  • How the CCG could reduce spending on pharmacy services

You told us

From 987 people who responded most people had ideas and suggestions on how we could reduce waste and save money. In addition people wanted to reduce pharmacy waste and the use of lower value medicines. There was a clear indication from the findings that further conversations should take place to make decisions in these areas.

What are we doing

The results of engagement were considered by the CCG and shared widely with all stakeholders.  The findings were used to identify areas of service change that the CCG could consult on to help reduce unnecessary spending.  People told The CCG that they wanted to see prescribing based on clinical effectiveness.

Following a process of consideration the CCG consulted on a range of products that fit the criteria identified in engagement.  The public helped the CCG determine the list of products that would be included in the consultation by providing feedback at the engagement stage.
