The Prescribed Specialised Services Advisory Group (PSSAG) is a Department of Health expert committee that was established in 2013 to provide ongoing advice to Ministers on whether services are specialised and should be nationally commissioned by NHS England, rather than locally commissioned by Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs).

This report sets out the proposals considered by PSSAG at its May and September 2014 meetings, and outlines the Group’s recommendations for each of these proposals. Ministers have accepted the recommendations set out in this report, with the exception of the recommendation for commissioning of renal dialysis services.
