New Health and Social Care Act

Health secretary explains new Health and Social Care Act

Health secretary Andrew Lansley has set out what the Health and Social Care Act will mean for health and care organisations and their staff – clinical commissioning groups, NHS foundation trusts, NHS trusts and local authorities.

He explains there are two simple principles at the heart of the act – that patients should share in every decision about their care and those responsible for patient care should have the “freedom and power to lead an NHS that delivers continually improving care”.
