    The last Specialised Services policy I read says that there is a dedicated fund for treating conditions for which treatment is now available but wasn't previously.  Great, I thought, the opto-kinetic treatment for MdDS is an example of this and, even more fun, it could save money for the NHS.  But, much like many of my medical consultations, the policy left me with more questions than answers.  The most significant one being 'how do we access this fund?'  I've asked my contact at NHS England but haven't heard back from her.
