Extract from the press release:

“Market forces alone will not deliver essential changes to hospital services, says The King’s Fund

The King’s Fund has questioned whether the government’s health reforms will deliver much-needed changes to the provision of hospital services, in a new report published today.

The report, Reconfiguring hospital services: lessons from South East London, outlines recommendations for policy-makers to ensure that so-called ‘reconfigurations’ of hospital services improve the quality of care for patients. It is based on a detailed analysis of protracted efforts to reorganise services in South East London, where financial problems and concerns about patient care have plagued four of its six local hospitals.”
