The purpose of the PbR Pilots is to develop and test out new approaches to the commissioning and delivery of drugs and alcohol recovery systems that reward achievement of this outcome. The 'expected benefits' of PbR include: improved commissioning and more productive and outcome focussed discussions between commissioners and providers; more investment in clinically and costeffective interventions; greater use of benchmarking; more innovation, market entry and competition; improvements in efficiency; and greater choice for service users.
