About the NHS and public service reform series

Against the backdrop of radical reform of the NHS, reform in education, welfare and criminal justice under way, and a public service reform White Paper due imminently, these events offer a timely opportunity to discuss the coalition government’s approach to public service reform and its implications for health care and the NHS.

The Prime Minister recently pledged to put integration 'at the heart of' the government's reforms to the NHS. What are the implications of this for patients, professionals and for the public purse? Are there lessons to draw on from the NHS and other public services to encourage integration of services?

This event was the last in our three-part series of breakfast events on the NHS and public sector reform.
