Training: using health intelligence to make better commissioning decisions Spring 2012

YHPHO has become part of Public Health England, joining its Knowledge and Intelligence Team (Northern and Yorkshire).

This page is an historical archive only.

This two and a half day programme was aimed at commissioners of NHS services within Yorkshire and the Humber, particularly those likely to be based in CCG’s and CSS’s. It aimed to help them understand what Health Intelligence data sources and tools are available and how they can be used to support them in making better evidence-based decisions. The course is managed by YHPHO and delivery is shared with local experts from PCTs and the SHA.
