Our Plans - Capital Developments

The implementation of the Government decision to reorganise the acute hospital system is a key priority in the reform of acute hospitals. Hospital Groups will continue to develop and progress the recommendations and associated governance and management arrangements of the report The Establishment of Hospital Groups as a Transition to Independent hospital Trusts. In 2015/2016 there will be a particular focus on (i) key infrastructural changes such as Hospital Groups and Community Healthcare Organisations (ii) service improvements in areas such as integrated care and specific speciality services and (ii) strategic enablers such as the individual health identifier. A number of key deliverables have been identified that will provide assurance that hospital groups and in parallel individual hospitals are achieving performance in relation to the quality and safety of services, financial resources, access to services and effective use of the effort of its overall workforce.
