Darzi review


Lord Darzi's Next Stage Review.... stage 1

Ara Darzi was appointed as (unelected) health minister by Gordon Brown in June 2007 with a brief to improve patient care. He immediately began the NHS Next Stage Review, described by health secretary Alan Johnson as a 'once-in-a-generation opportunity to ensure that a properly resourced NHS is clinically led, patient-centred and locally accountable'. The interim report Our NHS our future: NHS next stage review , published in October 2007, emphasised the need to build on earlier government reforms such as Payment by Results and confirmed fears that the marketisation of the NHS would continue apace.

No. 10 e-petitions

Since the launch of Downing Street's e-petition website in November 2006, there have been numerous NHS related petitions posted, some dealing with particular functions of the NHS such as the National Blood Service, and many dealing with particular proposed hospital closures and other changes to local services.

The effect of the petitions is a moot point, with Downing Street posting responses (although not to all the petitions submitted) at http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/list/closed?.

See No. 10 Petitions for links to current e-petitions and No 10 responses to past petitions.
