This report outlines options for reshaping NHS healthcare services that local health economies may wish to consider. It is intended to encourage debate about how the NHS can change its models of care to provide better services in the future. It aims to assist commissioners, providers and their local partners, as they look ahead. Commissioners, providers and their local partners have been asked to develop ambitious plans that look forward to the next five years, with the first two years mapped out in the form of detailed operating plans. Taking a five-year perspective is crucial, as commissioners and providers need to develop bold and ambitious plans rather than edging forward on an incremental basis one year at a time. This report outlines just the sort of potentially transformative options that local health economies may wish to consider.
