New service specifications for Severe Asthma and Complex Home Ventilation - consultation

The NHS Commissioning Board is consulting on new service specifications for Complex Home Ventilation and Severe Asthma.

A range of service specifications and clinical policies for specialised services commissioning by the NHS Commissioning Board (NHSCB) have been developed by Clinical Reference Groups. These include specifications for Complex Home Ventilation and Severe Asthma.

The specifications set out in detail the structure, population and deliver of NHS services in these areas, including:

  • population covered,
  • acceptance and exclusion criteria
  • service description and care pathway
  • infrastructure and multidisciplinary team 

The NHSCB has already engaged extensively on these new national specifications and policies, which have been developed with the support and input of lead clinicians and patient and public representatives. 

We now want to test them further with more stakeholders to ensure all needs and considerations have been taken into account.

The consultation period for these new additions will run from 11 January to 22 February 2013.
