NHS England is responsible for commissioning specialised services, including neuromuscular services.

In July 2013, NHS England published Neurosciences: Specialised Neurology (Adult) and a number of separate paediatric neurology services specifications. These describe the services commissioned by NHS England for patients with neuromuscular disorders. It is for providers to decide how to shape services to meet the specifications, taking into account the needs of their local populations.
