  • SHCA launches Manifesto for specialised services

    The Specialised Healthcare Alliance has launched its Manifesto for specialised services at a Parliamentary Reception attended by a wide range of patients and clinicians.

    Ahead of the 2015 General Election, the Alliance’s Manifesto calls for all political parties to commit to stability in the structures of specialised commissioning in order to allow the potential of the current arrangements to be maximised.

    The Manifesto also calls on NHS England to strengthen its commissioning structures by creating a single directorate for specialised services, as well as to work towards better integration of specialised and non-specialised care.

    The Alliance’s Chair, Baroness Wheeler, addressed the Parliamentary Reception, along with Andrew Gwynne MP for the Shadow Health Team and Earl Howe, the Minister with responsibility for specialised services.

    The Manifesto is now available to view. Further information on the reception will be available shortly.
