All Party Group for Muscular Dystrophy

After the Westminster Hall debate this morning I went to the All Party Muscular Dystrophy Group.
Following the Walton Report we have been monitoring the progress made by Specialist Commissioning teams from around the country in carrying out reviews of services and highlighting gaps in provision that need to be filled.

The NHS has asked local Trusts to find a staggering £30 billion of savings and so I asked a number of questions about what impact these necessary cost savings will have when the Specialist Commissioning groups (SCGs) are potentially trying to find extra resources.  While there was general agreement that some savings could be made without impacting on services, I was not convinced that any of the SCGs were really convinced that they would be able to fund the services that are required.
