Letter to NHS England on restricting access to services
- Health inequalities
National Voices has written an open letter to the Chief Executive of NHS England, Simon Stevens, expressing concern that decisions to restrict access to treatments and services will be made behind closed doors, with people not listened to. This would lead to outcomes which may be unfair, cause harm, or reinforce existing injustices and inequalities.
In the letter, we urge NHS England to upgrade decision making processes to ensure they are open, transparent, fully engaged and accountable.
