  • QIPP and specialised services reports

    The Specialised Healthcare Alliance has been working with the NHS’s regional Specialised Commissioning Groups (SCGs) to look at services which have been prioritised by the National Specialised Commissioning Group in relation to QIPP (Quality, Innovation, Productivity and Prevention – a policy which aims to deliver quality and productivity at a time of spending constraint). The Alliance has organised eight service specific stakeholder workshops in conjunction with the relevant lead SCG. These have been uniformly well attended with strong representation from clinicians, other healthcare professionals, commissioners, patients and patient groups.

    The service specific reports on blood and marrow transplantation, haemophilia, HIV and spinal cord injuries, available below, are informed by the discussions which took place at each workshop. An Executive Summary in each report outlines key findings and recommendations. A further batch of four reports will be posted shortly.
