NHS England specialised services commissioning intentions

On 8 August 2016, NHS Providers and NHS Clinical Commissioners helped bring together 50 providers and commissioners of specialised services for a workshop with NHS England.

The event was held to help inform the development of NHS England's strategic framework for specialised services and its commissioning intentions document for 2017/18. 

Videos of the main plenary sessions are available below and you can also watch a series of interviews exploring some of the key issues covered in the plenary sessions.
