NHS England is currently developing a five year vision and strategy for the commissioning of specialised services.
As the commissioner for specialised services, NHS England is inviting ideas from patients, the public and professionals to develop an "overarching mission and vision". 
The consultation will include a series of engagement events with a focus on how individual services can provide value for money. 
An NHS England statement said: "The type of change proposals sought may include changes to a service, system or pathway which can improve or make efficiencies for the benefit of service users.  
"The proposals should explain the root cause of a problem and how improvements could be made. Proposals should be presented in a clear and succinct way. These proposals will be used to define the service-level goals and objectives and ensure alignment to the overarching mission and vision as it is built over the next few months.
"We want to hear from everyone who can propose a service change that can be implemented at scale across the whole of a specialised service, and are encouraging joint submissions from patient, public and professional groups working together."
More information on the consultation – as well as how to submit a proposal – is available on the NHS England website
