AUKUH response to the DH White Paper: Liberating the NHS
12 October 2010
AUKUH has responded to the Department of Health White Paper: Liberating the NHS. We agree that health care needs to be undertaken differently if we are to address pressing public health issues and the requirements of an ageing population susceptible to multiple chronic diseases.
The delivery of quality care requires patients who are equipped and informed to take more responsibility for their own care and a workforce that is well trained and fit for purpose in the modern NHS. Patient care also needs to be informed by applied and translational research and the whole system needs to be evaluated and evolved according to evidence.
