1010-CR1.1: Response to the Department of Health’s NHS White Paper “Equity and Excellence: Liberating the NHS


This response specifies problems in the White Paper around measuring the quality of services, the need for NICE standards about the design of medical services, the nature and efficacy of feedback, the need for common coding of data measuring health-outcomes (using the WHO’s International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health, not just the ICD-10), ways in which continuity of care can be improved and audited, the essential nature and limits to public participation in medical services, problems with the idea of GP consortia-based commissioning, and fundamental flaws in a pro-market approach to a pro-social system in terms of regulation.
