Out of Hours template service specification (PDF)

Above is a nationally negotiated template service specification (developed and agreed by PSNC, the Department of Health and NHS Employers). LPCs and contractors are able to negotiate to provide services in accordance with this specification where a local need for the service is determined. Alternatively LPCs, contractors or the service commissioner are free to develop their own local services in response to identified needs.
