This report puts a lens to Clinical Commissioning Groups to see whether, and how, they are applying the Public Services (Social Value) Act 2012.

Key findings in the report show that 43% of respondents had no policy on the Social Value Act; only 25 CCGs (13%) demonstrated ‘highly committed, evidenced and active’ use of the Act; weighting procurement for social value, even amongst the most highly committed CCGs, is limited and low; and analysis of Sustainability and Transformation Plans found that just 13% mention Social Value.

If you work in procurement or commissioning for a CCG and are interested in finding out about making the most of the Social Value Act, our next masterclass in social value, the Social Value Academy takes place in Manchester on 6th July. See here for more details.
