We are advised that NHS England is currently reviewing the national peer review programme with a view to considering how its success might be extended into other new areas of specialised commissioning.

Regardless of the outcome of this review, cancer peer review will continue to play a critical part of any broader peer review programme NHS England may look to introduce. NHS England is currently building co-commissioning arrangements with Clinical Commissioning Groups and future programmes of work could be agreed - these may include Paediatric Diabetes.
