Review of Progress on Services for People With Neurological Conditions (NAO / BMJ)

Summary

This National Audit Office (NAO) report indicates mixed progress against the House of Commons Public Accounts Committee’s (2012) recommendations for improving services and achieving better outcomes for people with neurological conditions. The three recommendations against which progress has been poorest are:

  1. Use of the CCG Outcomes Indicator Set (CCGOIS), JSNAs and health and wellbeing boards to ensure appropriate access to services for people with neurological conditions.
  2. Joint health and social care commissioning of neurological services.
  3. Offering people with long-term neurological conditions personal care plans for health and social care.
