Interim specifications for specialised commissioning

NHS England has published the interim specifications it has adopted for the commissioning of specialised services.

The new service specifications, along with clinical commissioning policies, were the subject of a short, public consultation which ran from mid-December 2012 to February 2013. NHS England received more than 3,500 responses from individual patients, carers, patient groups, and clinicians which detailed how the proposals could be further developed to reflect the needs of patients. Feedback received during consultation informed the new specifications.
