Event highlights

On 10 July 2008, Lord Darzi spoke at The King's Fund following the publication of High Quality Care For All, the final report from the NHS Next Stage Review.

Lord Darzi emphasised the shift towards measuring quality of care, explaining how standards will be prioritised and set. He spoke about patient choice being the most important lever in driving care standards – providing patients with the right tools to make an informed choice about their care. Lord Darzi also made the case for increased accountability and the importance of greater transparency through reporting.

Lord Darzi was joined by David Nicholson, NHS Chief Executive, and Niall Dickson, Chief Executive of The King's Fund, who chaired a question and answer session after the speech.
