NHS England launched (04 April 2016) a 30 day public consultation on a number of proposed new products for specialised services (including service specifications and clinical commissioning policies), in an addition a 60 day public consultation has also been launched for the use of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy clinical commissioning policy.
There has already been extensive engagement on these national specifications and policies. They have been developed with the support and input of lead clinicians and tested with stakeholders. This approach has helped ensure that the views of key stakeholders have informed and influenced the development of the specifications and policies to date. Please note this is one of several public consultations on a proposed new draft products for specialised services. We now wish to test them further with wider stakeholders through public consultation.
