Keogh's NHS: 'Best services, close to people's homes'

Summarising his proposals, NHS Medical Director Sir Bruce Keogh broke his plan into two parts.

"The first part is to provide the very best possible services and as many services as we can close to people's home - in some cases in their home.

"The second part of the vision is that where people have very serious conditions, we ensure they are treated by clinical teams who have the best expertise and are supported by the best equipment."
