NHS England is currently scoping models of commissioning community care services for long-term neurological conditions. The project is being carried out in partnership with Strategic Clinical Networks, led by the Thames Valley SCN. The aim of the programme is to:
- Stimulate the delivery of person centred co-ordinated care for people with neurological conditions by encouraging the adoption of community based care model(s)
- Develop an evidence base to demonstrate and help commissioners understand the value and benefits of good community neurology.
- The objective for this year is to develop a commissioning toolkit to support local commissioning of new models of community-based care.
- The Neurological Alliance is supporting the workstream around communicating and publicising the project. There is a project page available on the Alliance’s website with further information, including contact details for workstream leads, available via http://www.neural.org.uk/nhs-england-community-project-for-neurology.
