The NHS Commissioning Board (NHS CB) has published a Service Level Agreement (SLA) that contains a guide to supplement the SLAs for use by the GCCs in obtaining support services for commissioning. The commissioning of occupational health services will assist commissioning teams in providing services to multidisciplinary occupational medicine providers, who offer a number of skills and expertise. Following a participation operation in January 2018, NHS England proposes to use a standard format for the activity and financial report (known as the Contract Monitoring Report aggregates) and to provide data flow support for all acute and mental health services ordered as part of the detailed version of the contract. These proposals are detailed in the introduction of proposals for aggregate tracking reports and in the document below on support for data flows, and we welcome the comments on them. NHS Employers has published two guidelines (updates 2013), Commissioning OH Services and Your Occupational Health Service, to assist occupational medicine executives, staff heads and staff managers in the commissioning of OH services and to understand what the OH services ordered should provide to their organization. The guidelines for the process of effect of the mandatory national amendment 2019/20 of existing contracts, the terms of which go beyond 31 March 2019, and the presentation of national variations are available below: these two documents support the consolidation of the Agenda for Health Services in the Workplace. The eContract system hosts contracts in a complete and short form and allows the contract to be adapted to the services provided, so that only the corresponding conditions and service plans are displayed. We strongly recommend that commissioners and suppliers use the eContract system. The NHS-Standard contract is mandated by NHS England for use by commissioners for all health care contracts other than primary care.
Their occupational health service must ensure that NHS organizations are aware of what they can expect from their OH service. In addition, it provides instructions on how to track this service and how to deal with the information, to ensure that the service provides employees with the best support. NHS Health at Work has launched an ALS model that can be adapted locally to occupational medicine units that they can use with their suppliers. The model is currently under study to be included in the Safe Efficiency Quality Quality Health Service (SEQOHS) knowledge management system.
