Health and Social Care Bill caught in log jam, not helped by change of Pilot at the helm.

Health and Social Care Bill caught in log jam, not helped by change of Pilot at the helm.

Last week, NHS England said it expects the new Health and Social Care Bill “imminently” and that it would be “the most significant NHS primary legislation for a decade”. We have reported on this issue some time ago.

Now with a change at the helm of the Government Department with Sajid Javid appointed as the new Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, reports say that No. 10 remains unconvinced of the Bill in its current form.

Like many issues post Hancock one wonders if some of the commitments within the new bill might be fudged?

Planned reforms include removing the commissioning of NHS healthcare services from the jurisdiction of the Public Contracts Regulations 2015, reforming existing tariff safeguards in favour of more ‘flexibility’ and establishing Integrated Care Systems (ICSs) on a statutory basis from 1 April 2022 via a new Health and Social Care Bill. Any of which might find less favour with the new administration.
