It is for individual primary care trusts (PCTs), including North Yorkshire and York PCT, within the national health service to develop locally the levels of service described in the 'National Service Framework for Long-term (Neurological) Conditions' (the NSF). The NSF has a 10-year implementation programme from its publication in March 2005, with flexibility for organisations to set the pace of change locally to take account of differences in local priorities and needs. A copy of the NSF is available in the Library.

Information on the progress that has been achieved locally with regard to the implementation of the targets set out in the NSF can be obtained direct from North Yorkshire and York PCT.
