Briefing: The Health and Social Care Bill - Recommital to Public Bill Committee

We welcome the report of the NHS Future Forum and the government's response to its recommendations. The amendments proposed by the government respond to many of the concerns that we and others have raised and will significantly improve the Bill.

This briefing represents our full response to the changes made to the Bill, including our concern that the scale of the reforms and the challenges associated with implementing them present risks that could affect NHS performance during this critical phase.
