SHCA announces major parliamentary event on specialised services

On 17th June, the Specialised Healthcare Alliance will be holding an event in Parliament to raise awareness of services for people with rare and complex conditions amongst parliamentarians and senior health leaders.

The event will consist of an expert lobby, bringing together a wide range of clinicians and patients to share their experience of specialised care with their MPs, followed by a parliamentary reception. The lobby is intended to demonstrate the scope and importance of specialised services, which collectively account for nearly £14billion of NHS spending. The individual testimonies of patients and clinicians are intended to bring these services to life.

The parliamentary reception will be an opportunity for the Alliance’s members, along with senior leaders from a range of health organisations, to join clinicians and patients in launching the SHCA’s Manifesto for specialised services.
