    Key messages Service planning and commissioning of integrated care Formalisation of the service planning and commissioning of LTV services through an integrated network of care providers is required. The aim would be to reduce variability in access to areas such as therapy services in and out of hospital, facilitate discharge, enable respite care and simplify how ventilator equipment is purchased and serviced. Multidisciplinary care Improved access to an appropriate multidisciplinary care team is needed to ensure people on LTV and their parent carers can be supported in the commun
