SHCA response to parliamentary debate on NHS specialised commissioning

Yesterday MPs debated the future of NHS specialised commissioning and raised a number of concerns on behalf of patient groups, particularly in relation to NHS England’s plans to ‘co-commission’ specialised services with local Clinical Commissioning Groups.

Both the Minister and Shadow Minister endorsed the principles underpinning national commissioning of these services, but a number of questions remain unanswered on the detail of NHS England’s plans.

The Specialised Healthcare Alliance’s response to the debate can be found here.
