New ‘Right Care’ packs

NHS England’s ‘Right Care’ programme has released refreshed ‘where to look’ packs for October 2016 to CCGs in England. These are a refresh of the Commissioning for Value Where to Look packs, last published in January 2016.

The packs identify condition areas where there are opportunities to improve value and outcomes for CCGs, including neurology in many cases. For more information https://www.england.nhs.uk/rightcare/intel/cfv/data-packs/

Consultations on generic commissioning policies

NHS England has released consultations on new generic commissioning policies: in-year service developments, individual funding requests, funding experimental and unproven treatments, and continuing funding after clinical trials. These policies relate to four distinct NHS England processes for funding treatments which are not currently routinely commissioned or subject to a mandated guidance from NICE. The consultations will be open for three months and details of all four consultations are available on NHS England’s website.

The deadline for these consultations is 15th January 2017. The Neurological Alliance will be preparing responses and would be grateful for any views or relevant evidence from members.
