The Evidence-Based Interventions Engagement document produced in July 2020 was consulted on over the summer of 2020 so that we could hear your thoughts about the proposals. We did this via five on-line events which were open for patients, the public, clinicians, commissioners, providers, in fact anyone with an interest to join in, hear more detail, ask questions and feedback views. The events covered the areas of:

  1. Surgery and devices (11 August)
  2. Diagnostics one – radiology and cardiology (11 August)
  3. Diagnostics two – pathology and other investigative procedures (18 August)
  4. Data focused (19 August)
  5. Post-engagement review (22 September)

The slides from these events can be seen below.

Alongside these online events the Patients Association also ran some patient focused workshops with their members to capture further insight specifically from the publics perspective.

The Evidence-Based Interventions: List 2 proposal document below, published in November 2020 was the result of the consultation period and formed the basis for the final Evidence-based Interventions: List 2 Guidance document.
