Public consultation on thrombectomy
NHS England has launched a 90 day public consultation on a number of proposed new products for specialised services.
The policy and service specification being consulted on are:
- Mechanical thrombectomy for acute ischaemic stroke (policy)
- Neurointerventional Services for acute Ischaemic and Haemorrhagic Stroke (service specification)
There has already been significant engagement on these products. They have been developed with the support and input of lead clinicians and tested with stakeholders. This approach has helped ensure that the views of key stakeholders have informed and influenced the development of the policies to date.
They now wish to test these further with wider stakeholders through public consultation.
