NHS - Have Your Say On Policy In Merseyside And Cheshire

18/05/2019

Six Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) in Merseyside and Cheshire are currently working together to review more than 100 local NHS policies and treatments to ensure that they have the best possible outcomes for patients, are in line with the latest clinical guidance and are making the best of the limited NHS resources available.

CCGs in Halton, Liverpool, Southport and Formby, South Sefton, St Helens and Warrington are currently reviewing treatments and procedures relating to:

  • Continuous glucose monitoring systems
  • Cough assist devices
  • Insulin pumps
  • Secondary care peripheral steroid joint injections
  • Surgery for Prostatism or lower urinary tract infection
  • Transanal irrigation

They are looking to understand the views and experiences of individuals/families who have received or are currently receiving one or more of the above treatments.  Clinicians, providers and community groups with an interest in the above treatments or policy changes, are also encouraged to share their views in the survey.

They are also informing patients about updates to Botulinum Toxin A & B treatments to bring them in line with NICE guidance and the Pan Mersey Area Prescribing Committee (APC).

The survey will be available online https://nhs.researchfeedback.net/s.asp?k=155652839910 which will take about 15 minutes to complete. The survey closes on 7 July 2019.

Anything you share will be anonymous. No personal identifiable information will be shared or published.
