Parliamentary debate on specialised commissioning - SHCA briefing


The Specialised Healthcare Alliance has produced a briefing for parliamentarians wishing to participate in this afternoon’s debate on national commissioning of NHS specialised services in Westminster Hall.

The debate is being led by Stephen Gilbert MP and the Alliance is calling for a focus on NHS England’s proposals to ‘co-commission’ specialised services with local Clinical Commissioning Groups.

National specifications are now in force for all specialised services and the SHCA is calling for Ministers to commit to the retention of national budget-holding for next year and future years.

Our briefing can be found below.
