Work Priorities

Work Priorities 2013-15

The Neurology areas of work are based on feedback from a Stakeholder event held in September 2013,

National Clinical Director advice and from early scoping arising from various NHSE publications on Mental Health, Dementia and Acute and Chronic Neurological Conditions.

The suggested criteria upon which the priorities are delivered focus on: 

  • National priorities/ambitions that need to be achieved by a specific date and where working collaboratively will assist this 
  • Where projects will have the greatest gains for population health - (the sum of the parts are greater than the whole etc.) 
  • Where collaborative working will prevent duplication between organisations (e.g. CCGs/CNs/AHSN/Area Teams etc.) 
  • Where the delivery of specific pieces of work actively contribute to a QIPP opportunity for collective CCGs and or NHS England 
  • Where there are opportunities to develop innovative working that will be used for regional/national sharing
