Transforming Community Neurology Services

The first commissioning guide, on delivering community neurology care, developed by the Thames Valley Strategic Clinical Network has been launched. There are three parts to the report and the first, which is the ‘Transformation Guide’ is a short read with some key messages about building services around the patient, in line with the Five Year Forward View from NHS England. Dr David Bateman in his ‘Foreword’ describes the guidance set out in the document  as ‘clear, accurate and well researched to allow successful commissioning’ and that ‘much evidence shows that planned, organised and integrated care is cheaper with better outcomes’.
