NHS England has today (24 March 2015) launched a 30 day public consultation on a proposed number of new products for specialised services, (including service specifications and clinical commissioning policies). There has already been extensive engagement on these national specifications and policies, as they have been developed with the support and input of lead clinicians and patient and public representatives. This approach has helped ensure that the views of key stakeholders have informed and influenced the development of the policies and specifications so far.
We now wish to test them further with wider groups of stakeholders.
We are consulting on the following documents:
Service specifications (split by National Programme of Care)
UK Genetic Testing Network (UKGTN) new test recommendations – (please note: The attached report recommends a new set of genetic tests for rare inherited conditions and these are listed in attachment one. Attachment two provides information about the costs and savings that each of the tests would bring)
