Network DES 2020/21 service requirements and supporting guidance

NHS England published an updated Network Contract DES Specification, Network Contract DES Guidance and Investment and Impact Fund implementation guidance.

•             Structured Medication Reviews (SMRs) and Medicines Optimisation

•             Early Cancer Diagnosis

•             Enhanced Health in Care Homes

Guidance is available on NHS England website and FAQs are available.
