Policy paper

The Quarter, quarter 1 2010/11

This publication was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government

David Flory's first quarterly report of 2010/11 and the first for the Coalition Government provides a summary of the NHS financial position and performance against national priorities set out in the Revision to the Operating Framework for the NHS in England 2010/11 published on 21 June 2010.  



Whilst this report shows that the NHS has made progress in recent years, the Coalition Government has asked the NHS to focus on a broader set of outcomes it must achieve for patients.

The White Paper Equity and excellence: liberating the NHS sets out proposals for a patient-centred NHS that achieves health outcomes that are amongst the best in the world.
