Charities advise on commissioning care

The ‘Commissioning Toolkit for Long-term Conditions' has been jointly developed by Asthma UK, the British Heart Foundation and Diabetes UK.

It will provide information on how commissioners can effectively work with local patients.

Donna Covey, chief executive of Asthma UK said the resource drew on the experiences of members, such as statistics showing 68 per cent of asthma sufferers report they have never been offered the name of a GP specialising in asthma care.
