This report explores the role of the private and third sector in transforming health and care services and sets out what the NHS can learn from other industries such as retail and manufacturing. The authors warn that 'the NHS is in the grip of two crises' of affordability and quality. Nearly all patients experience 'care that is fragmented and of variable quality'. Change is needed but there is a 'false loyalty' to traditional models and organisations, the majority of which have changed little in the last 50 years. The report shows that within a decade new service models from voluntary and private sectors could change the way nearly 75 per cent of NHS hospitals and GP practices work.
