We don't recognise the bleak picture painted in this report.We know there is a lot to do to ensure the NHS delivers the best care for everyLondoner but we are very positive about the impact clinicians will have inshaping services. The government has asked more GPs to have greater control ofthe NHS system, and in just three months since the new arrangements came intoeffect, we are seeing really positive change, such as the formation of JointCommissioning Boards in London. These are very similar to what the King’sFund calls for in the report.
