NHS White Paper

Health White Paper, ‘Equity and Excellence: liberating the NHS’

The White Paper represents possibly the most radical restructuring of the NHS since its inception. It would transform how health care is commissioned, with around £80 billion pounds being transferred to new GP consortia.

To read the briefing paper click:- NHS White Paper-10-7

The policy agenda is far reaching and the timetable for implementation extremely ambitious – given the scale of change and the context of increasing financial pressures facing the service.

There are now 5 additional consultation papers on the NHS proposals. Click to view:-

Consultation 1 – Outcomes Framework

Consultation 2 – Local democratic legitimacy in health

Consultation 3 – Commissioning for Patients

Consultation 4 – regulating healthcare providers

Consultation 5 – HealthWatch Engagement Document – final
