VNS therapy is approved for commissioning

The NHS Specialist Commissioning Board has approved commissioning for VNS Therapy for epilepsy across England. This means that specialised services, such as VNS Therapy, will be "commissioned using a nationally consistent approach". This should mean that individuals have equal access to these services wherever they live in England. Further details are available on the NHS England website.
