National Health Service Receives Positive Performance Report

A recent report released by the King's Fund shows that the National Health Service (NHS) has been performing well, with productivity gains of £4.3 billion in 2010–11 and £5.8 billion in 2011–12. These savings were accomplished without increasing waiting lists or worsening patients' experiences with care. Furthermore, 12,500 patients have received anticancer drugs through the cancer drug fund set up in 2011, the incidence of health care–acquired infections has continued to fall, and alcohol consumption has begun to decrease. The report authors did warn that there must be a focus on ensuring that the quality of care does not deteriorate as further financial pressures are placed on the NHS.
