Title: NHS England Publishes Specialised Services Consultation
Post by: Mark Platt on February 2 2015, 12:10 pm

Investing in Specialised Services
 
This week NHS England has launched a public consultation on a proposed set of principles which will underpin the future decision making process for investment in specialised services. The consultation document also outlines the characteristics of the process NHS England will use to make these decisions.

In conducting a full public consultation, NHS England is seeking to ensure that the principles and characteristics for making decisions on investing in specialised services are well informed, evidence-led and in line with the expectations of patients and the public.

Consultation provides the opportunity to gain information about any potential impact on health inequalities which might arise as a result of new or changed processes for making decisions about health services that are directly commissioned by NHS England.  The consultation can be found here: https://www.engage.england.nhs.uk/consultation/3a67882b
 
Please do pass on to any colleagues you feel may be interested in this consultation.
