  • NHS Commissioning Board needs to lead for others to follow

    In a piece for the Health Service Journal on 8th December, John Murray argues that the potential of the NHS Commissioning Board to bring about far-reaching improvements in specialised care depends on a clear vision, strongly communicated from the top.

    The article concludes: “Historically, specialised commissioning has been an afterthought in policy. The extent to which the board lays that accusation to rest will be a good predictor of the overall success of the reforms. The silence of the 2012-13 operating framework inevitably gives cause for concern.”
