A radical shift in the culture of the NHS is needed to rid it of outdated working practices, cure it of widespread bullying and heal the damaging rift between managers and clinicians, the head of its official regulator has warned.
David Prior, chairman of the Care Quality Commission (CQC), also called for serious "transformational change" of the health service, without which it will "go bust".
Writing in the Sunday Telegraph, Mr Prior called for greater input from the private sector, the merging of hospitals and changes to the way the NHS is held to account - particularly, the scrapping of waiting targets.
