The Long-Term Medical Conditions Alliance and the Neurological Alliance have published a joint report on a survey of service users, carers and voluntary organisations that will help develop the national service framework for long-term conditions.The NSF is to be published later in the year, but the report found that people are still concerned about its 'process, scope and content'.LMCA chief executive David Pink and Maureen Kelly, chair of the Neurological Alliance said 'a common perception is that the views of service users are not being taken seriously in the development of these standards'.
