Future organisational models for the NHS

Ahead of the Dalton review, which is examining ways to encourage the best providers to support those that are struggling, our paper with the Foundation Trust Network explores some of the organisational models that providers could use to meet their current strategic and financial challenges. With a growing number of health care providers in deficit and others placed in special measures because of concerns about the quality of their care, the search is on to find ways in which they could be supported. Sir David Dalton’s forthcoming review provides a timely opportunity to explore the range of organisational models that providers could use to meet their current strategic and financial challenges.

If you read only one thing this week

Two years ago the UK government said it would introduce a minimum price on a unit of alcohol. Instead it chose to ban below-cost selling. Alan Brennan and colleagues have now modelled the two approaches and found a big difference in their likely impact (BMJ 2014;349:g5452, doi:10.1136/bmj.g5452). A minimum unit price of 43p (€0.55; $0.69) would affect nearly a quarter of all units sold, compared with just 0.7% affected by the ban. Our editorialist Tim Stockwell (BMJ 2014;349:g5617, doi:10.1136/bmj.g5617) thinks we can trust this analysis and wonders why the UK alcohol industry is so against a minimum unit price, while the policy has been embraced in Canada. Could it be the fear that the policy would prove beneficial to health and open the door to restrictions of other health harming commodities such as tobacco and fast food?

Exploring CQC’s well-led domain

The CQC’s inspections focus on five key lines of enquiry as part of its ‘well-led’ domain. This paper sets out what boards can do in these five areas and draws on examples of good practice in leadership and culture in health care. Following the Francis Report into the failures of care at Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust, and the government’s response to the report, the Care Quality Commission (CQC) has introduced a more rigorous and wide-ranging approach to inspecting health care providers. The main purpose of inspections is to assess the quality of care delivered to patients. In making this assessment, CQC now also analyses the leadership and organisational culture of providers.
