NHS England publishes Specialist Services Commissioning intentions - 2015/16
Posted on: October 7 2014, 05:31 pm

NHS England has just published it's Commissioning Intentions 2015/16 for Prescribed Specialised Services

The full document is available here: http://www.england.nhs.uk/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/comms-intents-2015-16.pdf

But the specifics HIV references are:

Haemophilia tendering & HIV drugs
110. Following a tendering exercise in 2014/15 the national frameworks for the supply of blood clotting factor products are in place. All centres using blood clotting factor products for NHS patients will be expected to purchase factor products in line with these agreed national arrangements. A similar requirement will also apply to the use of regional contract framework agreements for HIV drugs.

Hepatitis B & C and HIV
113. Increases in blood borne virus testing of offenders are planned by Public Health England during 2015/16 and 2016/17. This will impact on growth rates for these services; commissioners and providers should take this into account when capacity planning these services. An assessment of the scale of impact is being undertaken and further information will be provided to area teams and providers later this year. It is likely that the NHS will embark on a procurement process to identify optimal Hepatitis C treatments from amongst the new therapies becoming available
