March 2021: NHS Reorganisation

12 March 2021

The current NHSE legislative proposals to restructure the NHS, set out in this government white paper in February 2021, represent a profound change to the way that services have previously been overseen and planned. PRUComm colleagues are concerned about the lack of detail and the failure to explain how current functions will be carried out in the new system, as well as the effects on accountability of the proposals. This report summarises the main issues we think the proposals raise.
