Your Cobic Club has been refreshed, relaunched and is now free

Last year we launched the Cobic Club – a private forum where you – CCGs and partners including local authorities and provider organisations – can network, discuss and share learning around outcomes-based commissioning (OBC).

The Club has had great success in facilitating networking and learning so far this year. We’ve held a series of events – the most recent of which saw providers, commissioners, regulatory bodies and NHS England come together to share experiences of, and better understand OBC. And we held a number of webinars to help you access, and ask questions of some of the key experts in the field.

But we want to do more. We’ve listened to your views and feedback, and are relaunching the Club to give you more of what you want. We’ll provide even greater opportunity for peer-to-peer networking and learning, and offer more practical support and resources for implementing OBC. And most importantly it’s now free* to join the Club – all you need to do is register here to become a member.

Why have we created the Club?

Cobic is a catalyst for change in health and care commissioning. We want to create a national health service where every contact will help people achieve the outcomes that matter to them. We think it’s time for a revolution in healthcare and the Cobic Club will be right at the centre of making this happen.

What does the Club offer?

As a member, you’ll be invited to monthly webinars, the next of which will take place on Thursday November 27th at 12.00 with Arnold Fertig – Clinical Lead for Older People’s Services, Cambridgeshire and Peterborough CCG. You will have access to an online library of resources, and from January we will hold quarterly workshop events, focussed on practical learning and implementation of OBC.

But that’s not all – in their regular meetings with politicians and policy makers our Directors will represent the views of Club members, and will feedback on discussions via ours blogs and workshops. We’ll also offer discounted tickets to conferences and events.

We’d be delighted to tell you more about the Club and would love to find out what you would want to gain from joining – please contact Caitriona Darling on ( or 020 3375 6015).

Alternatively, come and find our team next week at the Commissioning Live  Conference on Tuesday 18th November, or on Wednesday 19th November at the Foundation Trust Network Annual Conference where Dr Nicholas Hicks will be hosting a breakfast briefing at 07.30, and Dr Diane Bell will be chairing a conference strand session at 11.50.

Welcome to the Cobic Club!

Please register here and join our revolution.

COBIC – Capitated Outcome-Based Incentivised Commissioning – is a common sense approach to securing both value for money and better outcomes for patients. As a contracting approach, COBIC releases commissioning and providing organisations to get the best out of their responsibilities handed to them from the NHS reforms.
