Sickle Cell Service Review

The Sickle Cell Society is asking for your views on NHS England’s planned changes to short and long stay admissions to hospital for people with Sickle Cell Disease (SCD).

You may have already heard about NHS England’s plans, which cover how short and long stay admissions to hospital is provided to people with SCD.

The Sickle Cell Society wants to hear as many peoples’ views about these changes as possible. We want to ensure that NHS England’s plans are understood by everyone affected by SCD, and that any questions or comments you have about the changes are listened to, and receive responses.

Your views are important. They will inform our consultation, enable us to feed back vital information to NHS England, and help shape what happens next.

Below is the document NHS England has produced to explain why they propose the changes, what the changes may look like, and the possible effect on patients. Click on the image to view the document (or click here). Take some time to read through and understand them.

Once you have read through, record and submit your feedback through the online survey below or by visiting this link: Link to Online survey

    Please can you also put the web address of the document up? I’m having trouble opening it on an NHS computer with their extra security. Thanks
