NFCN responds to NICE multimorbidity guidance consultation

NFCN responded to the consultation from NICE on the scope for new guidance on managing 'multimorbidity' - when people have more than one long term health problem. Our response raised concern that the scope might exclude health problems linked to a person's learning disability. We asked how the guidance would take account of the support many people need from family carers and paid support workers. We also sought assurance that the recommendations of the House of Lords report on Mental Capacity Act implementation would be reflected in development of the guidance.
