Detail

NHS Chief Executive Sir David Nicholson has written to the chief executive community setting out plans to lead the implementation of Liberating the NHS. As the NHS moves at pace to make the Government’s vision a reality, it is vital that it continues to deliver on quality, finance and performance, as well as make the required productivity savings of £15-20 billion. This first communication sets out the initial steps that are being taken at a national level to ensure the NHS continues to deliver for today whilst designing a new system for tomorrow. It provides a framework within which Strategic Health Authorities can lead this process regionally, and sets out some initial actions that commissioners and providers need to take as part of state of readiness for 2012.
