NHS England publishes Understanding the new NHS
When Sir Bruce Keogh was NHS Medical Director, he commissioned a guide to the NHS for junior doctors. At the Faculty of Medical Leadership and Management conference in October 2013, he committed to updating this guide to reflect the changes in the new NHS.
NHS England have today fulfilled this commitment and published Understanding the new NHS – A guide for everyone working and training within the NHS. Written by five doctors in training, the guide outlines the organisations, systems and processes that define, sustain and regulate the NHS.
The document is an accessible, practical and informative tool for everyone working and training in the NHS, and will be of particular interest and relevance to doctors and clinicians in training.
This guide is a snapshot in time and is correct at the date of issue – June 2014.
