SPECIALISED SERVICE TYPE

A specialised service as defined in the National Specialised Services Definition Set. The definitions identify the activity that should be regarded as specialised and therefore subject to any arrangements that are in place for the commissioning of specialised services. The definitions provide a helpful basis for service reviews and strategic planning and enable commissioners to establish a broad base-line position and make initial comparisons on activity and spend. The definition set can be found at www.doh.gov.uk/specialisedservicesdefinitions.
