Modernising radiotherapy services in England – Consultation on proposed service specification
From NHS England
NHS England has launched an 8 week consultation on radiotherapy services. The radiotherapy consultation is seeking feedback on a new specification for adult radiotherapy services.
The development of the proposed service specification sits alongside NHS England’s £130 million investment in radiotherapy equipment, which was announced last year and is aimed at delivering the vision for 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.
Through the consultation, NHS England would like to get more views on these proposals from patients, carers, members of the public, clinicians and anyone else who may have an interest in radiotherapy services. Before completing the survey, please read the Radiotherapy Service Specification and Consultation Guide. You might also like to read the Supporting information and Impact Assessment.
