Government response to the NHS Future Forum report


Jun 2011 by Department of Health
Between April and June 2011, the NHS Future Forum, led by Professor Steve Field, heard the views of thousands of people – patients, professionals and members of the public. They listened to every professional group and toured every region in the country, producing a report for the Government on 13th June. The NHS Future Forum confirmed that there was considerable support for the principles of the Government’s reforms, but said that some of the ways in which it was putting those principles into practice could be improved. This report sets out the Government’s response to their core recommendations, all of which it accepts, and sets out its revised plans for NHS reform.
