Government will keep distance

26th June 2006

The government will stop interfering and let NHS organisations ‘get on with the job’ after it has published its new commissioning framework in July, NHS acting chief executive Sir Ian Carruthers has promised.

Sir Ian told delegates at the NHS Confederation conference that the new framework will support managers to ‘advance reform locally’, covering ways to strengthen commissioning.

He added it would also tie together and set out the government’s policies for ‘provider reform’ in addition to regulation and management. But he said the Department of Health would let trusts get on with the job.

Sir Ian also reiterated that managers had political support from the ‘prime minister down’ for making difficult decisions to achieve ‘net financial balance’ by the end of the current financial year while ‘continuing to deliver high-quality NHS services’.
