The Health and Social Care Bill 2011

The new Health and Social Care Bill was published on 19 January 2011 and ushers in a new era of, and structures for governance of the NHS in England. In a nutshell, the new bill represents the biggest shake-up of the NHS since its inception in 1948 with most of the NHS budget being handed to GPs, through ‘GP consortia, who, as independent contractors, will be responsible for commissioning treatment and care for patients in line with guidance set by a new national NHS commissioning board.

An interesting summary of the new Bill, together with a link to the actual Bill itself, can be found on the excellent ‘onmedica’ website here.

In addition, the Mac Partnership’s Public Involvement blogsite can always be relied upon for solid analysis of public policy matters, particularly in respect of public involvement matters. Click here.
