As Clinica went to press, the UK government announced plans to award £1m ($1.5m) to the best performing National Health Service (NHS) acute trusts. The announcement comes as the results of the second national performance assessment, published last week, have prompted the government to admit that further improvements are necessary. "The performance of hospitals is improving against standards that are getting tougher, but more needs to be done to raise these further," said health secretary Alan Milburn.
