Published in July 2010, the White Paper ‘Equity and Excellence: Liberating the NHS’ outlines our vision to make the NHS a truly world class healthcare service that puts patients at its heart and clinicians in the driving seat, focused on outcomes.

Following three months of consultation on its plans for the service, the Government’s response published today sets out further policy development based on substantial feedback and reaffirms the strong commitment to the reforms.
