On the agenda this week: The Government has published its final review into the criminal abuse at Winterbourne View Hospital, setting out a programme of change to rapidly improve the standard of care for vulnerable people; proposed changes to the GP contract would see GPs rewarded for earlier diagnosis and better care of dementia patients; and three doctors, two nurses and a health trainer are among those named as best in their fields in this year’s NHS Leadership Recognition Awards.
