In one of the most radical shake ups within the NHS in years, Andrew Lansley, Secretary of State for Health, sets out his vision for the future of the NHS where the “patient is at the heart of everything we do”.

Just last week the Department of Health published a revised Operating Framework to move towards scrapping the 18 week target for hospital waiting times, the 4 hour A & E target and the 48 hour target for GP access.
