More about this breakfast event series

The NHS is at a critical juncture. It is already faced with the biggest financial challenge in its history and the prospect of implementing the most far-reaching reforms since it was established. The Francis report is also set to fundamentally challenge how the NHS is delivering on its core mission of providing high-quality care for patients.
