- New approach to prostate cancer screening needed
The UK needs to invest in testing for those men most at risk of prostate cancer rather than follow a cast-the-net-wide approach targeting the whole population, a leading scientist from The University of Manchester has argued at an international conference this week.
- An overview of recent NHS reorganisation and a tale of policy ethnography (featuring NHS111)14:00 - 15:00 Tuesday 11 March 2014
Host: Centre for Primary Care
About the event:
The NHS in England has recently experienced one of the most far-reaching reorganisations in its history as a result of the Health and Social Care Act 2012 (HSCA). The policy created Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), geographically based organisations composed primarily of GPs, which replaced Primary Care Trusts as the main purchasers of health care services for local populations. A new organisation—NHS England—was formed to authorise and scrutinise CCGs as well as purchase certain specialised medical services. These reforms have created the conditions for new and evolving constellations of governance at national, regional, and local levels; this process has broad implications for accountability, responsibility, and legitimacy within the system.
