NHS Next Stage Review


The Specialised Healthcare Alliance has submitted a response to Lord Darzi’s review of the NHS. This highlights the need to treat specialised services as an integral part of the NHS and to involve patients and their advocates in any reconfiguration of services with savings directed back into patient care. The Alliance looks forward to working with Lord Darzi and his team in ensuring that the Next Stage Review places appropriate emphasis on these matters in its final report and recommendations.
