The Health Secretary is to set out his thoughts today at the Reform conference.
Patients must always come first if the NHS is to deliver the best and safest care possible. That is the simple defining principle at the heart of the recent Francis report into events at Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust.
We need to deliver this principle, and we need help to make sure the system is set up in the right way to allow us to do it.
It is in no one's interest that staff and management have to deal with red-tape that pulls them away from patient care.
