Have your say in the AAR
Organisations are being invited to have their say on the government Accelerated Access Review (AAR).
In late November Medilink Yorkshire & Humber facilitated a workshop held at Medilink member JRI Orthopaedics to bring together organisations to share in the debate on what the final recommendations should be. The review is now heading into the second stage of engagement and the Department of Health wants interested organisations and individuals to help develop final recommendations for the review.
Regular opportunities are available for individuals and organisations to have an input into the review, which will be moving into its final phase at the beginning of next year.
The AAR review is an excellent opportunity to get involved so don’t miss out!
