UK Health Secretary's thoughts on NHS

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The creation of new UK health authorities next year "gives us a golden opportunity to improve the public accountability of the health service", says UK Secretary of Health Stephen Dorrell. In a letter to chairmen of NHS Trusts and Health Authorities outlining his priorities for the health service, he comments that the abolition of the distinction between the District Health Authorities and the Family Health Service Authorities will facilitate the integration of local services. "The balance of services traditionally provided in hospitals, the community health services and the family health services will shift to reflect advances in clinical practice."
