“…..The NHS White Paper, Equity and excellence: Liberating the NHS, sets out the Government's long-term vision for the future of the NHS.
The vision builds on the core values and principles of the NHS - a comprehensive service, available to all, free at the point of use, based on need, not ability to pay.
The following chapters set out how we will bring about this long-term transformation through:
• putting patients and the public first;
• focusing on improvement in quality and healthcare outcomes;
• autonomy, accountability and democratic legitimacy; and
• cutting bureaucracy and improving efficiency.
These plans are interconnected and mutually reinforcing. The final chapter sets out plans for making it happen. The Department will take forward work to manage the transition and flesh out further policy details in partnership with external organisations, seeking their help and expertise.
