This consultation is also asking stakeholders specifically whether the current proposed timescales for the transfer of services are feasible.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>NHS England has advised that they are in dialogue with key stakeholders about both the opportunities and challenges of transferring responsibility for renal services. The head of the Specialised Services Task Force in NHS England recently met stakeholders from renal service representative groups and heard their concerns directly.
