The NHS reforms mean substantial changes to the future of healthcare.  The structure is changing to one that is run from the bottom up with ownership and decision making in the hands of professionals and patients.  In an environment where shared decision making will become the norm and patients will have a choice of provider, new skills are needed.


Strategic issues

It is essential that learning and development is aligned to the changing demands and challenges of the NHS reforms and result in a new structure that is genuinely centred on patients and carers. Some of the key strategic issues include:

  • More partnership working and greater collaboration across boundaries, including with local authorities and between hospitals and practices.
  • Achieving best value in service delivery by continually improving performance to secure efficiency, economy and effectiveness.
  • Eliminating discrimination and reduces inequalities in care.
  • Supporting organisational development (OD)of the NHS
  • Greater transparency, with clearer accountabilities for quality and results.
