Commissioning Elf

Part of the National Elf Service, the Commissioning Elf is an evidence-based information source for health and social care professionals working in the area of commissioning and provision of care services.

Because of the nature of the subject area, evidence to support commissioning decisions comes from a range of sources, not just clinical journals, but research from other sectors including the third sector, commercial, and education. It may not follow a structure that can easily be critically appraised, and therefore, it is important to have expert interpretation, and this is what writers for the Commissioning Elf can provide.
