1209-CR1.2: Response to the UK Government’s Consultation “Developing our NHS Care-Objectives”

Summary:

This response specifies problems in the NHS draft-mandate on care-objectives.  Though the draft-mandate is a positive first step towards a more patient-centred approach to healthcare, there are significant conceptual, strategical and technical problems in the document.  Methods to ensure transparency and accountability are necessary, along with establishing more concrete definitions of concepts such as patient-centredness, normative strategies for implementation and relevant methods of assessing progress are necessary to ensure that an integrated patient-centred service is implemented that focuses on specific comprehensive and personal health outcomes.
