NHS England consults on the future of radiotherapy services
NHS England has launched a consultation seeking feedback on a new specification for adult radiotherapy services.
The proposed specification sets out how modernised services should be organised across England so that patients can access sustainable, high-quality and safe treatment.
It also describes the benefits of doing things differently, and why the changes are needed.
The specification has been developed by talking to a range of stakeholders and was informed by a period of engagement with relevant groups in 2016. Click here to read the report.
Through the consultation, NHS England will be seeking more views on these proposals from patients, carers, members of the public, clinicians and anyone else who may have an interest in radiotherapy services.
How can you share your views?
The consultation period for these proposals runs from 18 October to 18 December 2017.
