answer text <p>The number of people with neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) in England is estimated to number 11,267. The condition can be mild in some patients, manifesting itself only in patches of skin discolouration and soft benign bumps under the skin (neurofibromas), but for others NF1 causes more serious complications, including a rare form of cancer, curvature of the spine and nerve problems caused by more invasive neurofibromas.</p><p> </p><p>Since 1 April 2013, NHS England has been responsible for securing high quality care for all patients with complex NF1 as part of its specialised commissioning responsibilities. NHS England's NF1 service specification clearly sets out what needs to be in place for providers to offer evidence-based, safe and effective care, ensuring equity of access to a nationally consistent, high quality service. Specialist care is delivered by two designated centres based in Manchester (Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust) and London (Guys and St. Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust, London) and these provide outreach support into other cities. The service is available to all patients with a suspected or confirmed diagnosis of NF1.</p><p> </p><p>The service specification can be viewed on the NHS England website at the following link:</p><p> </p><p>www.england.nhs.uk/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/b13-comp-neurofib-1.pdf.</p>

The Congress will engage with local providers in developing these plans to ensure that there is a single five-year plan for the local health economy. This work will lead to a full public consultation on those services during the autumn of 2015.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The Congress brings together the combined skills, knowledge and expertise of commissioners to work the provider sector on defining the range, scale and scope of services changes to ensure Staffordshire is both clinically and financially sustainable in the long term.</p><p> </p>
