- An overview of recent NHS reorganisation and a tale of policy ethnography (featuring NHS111)14:00 - 15:00 Tuesday 11 March 2014
Host: Centre for Primary Care
About the event:
The NHS in England has recently experienced one of the most far-reaching reorganisations in its history as a result of the Health and Social Care Act 2012 (HSCA). The policy created Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), geographically based organisations composed primarily of GPs, which replaced Primary Care Trusts as the main purchasers of health care services for local populations. A new organisation—NHS England—was formed to authorise and scrutinise CCGs as well as purchase certain specialised medical services. These reforms have created the conditions for new and evolving constellations of governance at national, regional, and local levels; this process has broad implications for accountability, responsibility, and legitimacy within the system.
