The National Health Service and Public Health Service in England: Secretary of State's Annual Report 2011/2012
- Department of Health
- TSO (The Stationery Office)
The Health and Social Care Act 2012 requires the Secretary of State to produce an annual report for Parliament setting out how the National Health Service (NHS) in England has performed. The first report was due from 1 April 2013, but the report 'The National Health Service and Public Health Service in England: Secretary of State's Annual Report (Cm. 8373)' is being issued early to show the direction in which the NHS is heading.
The health service has performed well in 2011/12: it has either maintained or improved performance against a range of quality indicators set out in the Operating Framework, whilst also meeting the first stage of the financial challenge with a reported £5.8 billion of Quality, Innovation, Productivity and Prevention savings.
The report examines performance in the wider comprehensive health service:
promotion of growth, innovation and research; and
education, training and workforce.
There is also a specific focus on reducing health inequalities and the delivery of integrated care. The emphasis on improving health outcomes is reflected in the development of the outcomes frameworks for public health, the NHS and adult social care.
Future reports will be focused on outcomes rather than process measures and system changes.
