Changing health service

Ever since the NHS was created it has been dominated by two services – hospitals and GP care. But if the health service is to thrive in the 21st Century that will have to change. There will need to be a third pillar – the community service (or integrated care as it is known in the NHS). The term covers services aimed at people with long-term conditions. They are the patients who need care as there is no cure.

This is how the BBC have described the pressing need for health services to meet the needs of people with chronic conditions. More on this and the imminent changes to the structure and function of the NHS at the BBC health news site.
