NHS Commissioning Board consults on specialised services

All patients requiring treatment from a specialised service are to have access to the same standard of service and the same clinical policy wherever they live.  The nature and extent of this specialised care are subject to a consultation by the NHS Commissioning Board (NHS CB). The six-week consultation running from 12 December 2012 to 18 January 2013 will seek the views of patients and carers, patient groups, charities, nurses, doctors and service providers on 120 draft service specifications and 43 underpinning clinical commissioning policies. Developed by expert clinicians, commissioners of care and patient representatives working closely together, this nationally consistent approach aims to provide patients across England with high quality care and equitable treatment. To make the consultation process as smooth as possible, the NHS CB has developed an easily accessible online platform where all the materials can be easily viewed and responses posted.  A final report outlining the new arrangements for specialised clinical commissioning is expected to be published in February 2013. To find out further information and to respond to the consultation, please go to the NHS CB’s specialised services commissioning pages.
