The five year forward review for the NHS in England has been published today. The review can be accessed online at http://bit.ly/1rr78ja.
Speaking about the review, Chair of the Academy of Royal Colleges and Faculties, Professor Terence Stephenson, said, "The Five Year Forward View sets out an innovative and positive vision for the NHS. Whilst we have not had the opportunity to consider the proposals in detail, the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges is clear that many of the ideas reflect thinking that is underway in medical royal colleges.
Presidents of the Medial Royal Colleges are meeting Simon Stevens and NHS England next week and will take the opportunity to explore how the proposals can be taken forward and how doctors can help the NHS to be a world class service based on need not ability to pay."
