Slide notes:After the 2010 general election in the United Kingdom, the new government proposed to decentralize the financial and managerial duties from the regional and local health authorities and transfer them to local control by general and specialist physician groups, nurses, and consumer, or lay, representatives. This was based on the notion that general practitioners and specialist groups are more familiar with the needs of the patient population of a particular area. Each of t hese groups would determine which medical services to provide for the population it represented. The local groups must continue to provide for the urgent and emergency needs of the population and address ongoing health and social needs, and ensure patients interests are protected through monitoring quality and efficiency outcomes.
