  1. I've submitted my feedback directly on this. But some concerns I had was that this briefing note only appears to have gone to CMAG and the Clinical Leads group.
    Also, I think it'd be great if feedback was more public, openly discussed, as a matter of transparency. There seems to be fewer active (public) discussions than ever before (not just this group) so members have little insight into each others views. As a community, it'd be good to have visibility of any issues or agreements we all might have.

  2. Thanks Matt Cordell 

    The BN was sent to the EAG, MF, CMAG and Clinical leads groups. The intention was to get input from our associated groups first and then go out with a more informed proposal after considering that input.  Because the proposal has such a broad impact on users, we would want to give the community plenty of time to review and respond.
