A scoping workshop was held in June 2010, where potential changes to the remit of this appraisal were proposed. These proposals were put the Department of Health, who are currently in the process of considering the request to amend the remit. There are a complex set of issues to be discussed regarding the suggested changes to the remit and these need to be explored further before the Department of Health can take a decision.

Therefore, this appraisal is now suspended and we will inform you of updated arrangement for this appraisal as soon as we can.
