The Department has not carried out such an audit and has no plans to conduct an audit. NHS England is responsible for the commissioning and delivery of prescribed specialised services, such as neuromuscular services.

We are advised that NHS England, along with the clinical commissioning groups in the area, is currently reviewing specialist services to ensure they meet national specification standards. This work is ongoing and no decisions have been taken.
