The new NHS
The NHS is undergoing major changes in its core structure to deliver the ambitions set out in the Health and Social Care Act. Public Health England, the NHS Trust Development Authority and Health Education England took on their full range of responsibilities at the same time. NHS England is an independent body, separated from the government. Its main aim is to improve health outcomes for people in England. It will do this by creating the culture and conditions for health and care services and staff to deliver the highest standard of care and ensure valuable public resources are used effectively to get the best outcomes for society now and for future generations.
