It’s been two and a bit years since I published my review into options and opportunities for providers of NHS care. It was my privilege to think through and propose, to the Secretary of State, new ways for providers to address the challenges they faced.
Today these challenges of financial and service pressures, and sharp variation in both efficiency and quality remain. It’s my firm view that the ideas explored in the review still hold true today, and warrant attention from all those providing NHS care. How have we progressed since 2014? And what work still remains?
