Listen to HSJ’s new year podcast, including our list of the 10 events that dominated NHS policy in the past decade, and what’s in store for 2020.
Among others, they feature the pre-2010 financial crash, the 2013 Francis inquiry report, and the Liberal Democrats’ ill-fated early interventions on the development of the Health and Social Care Act 2012.
And as we embark on a new decade, we discuss why NHS leaders can hope for a slightly better time from the 2020s, and what to expect in 2020, including:
- Much more international recruitment and attempts at flexible working;
- More capital funding — unless the huffing-puffing Treasury gets in the way;
- A new debate on NHS legislation and competition rules; and
- Simon Stevens staying a little longer.
