Medical revalidation

Our qualitative assessment of the impact to date of medical revalidation on the behaviour of doctors and the culture of organisations within seven case study sites across England. Medical revalidation of doctors became a statutory obligation for all employing organisations in 2012, but its origins stretch back to 2000. In that period, the NHS has undergone many changes and been scrutinised by several reviews. It was against this shifting context that The King's Fund carried out a qualitative assessment of the impact to date of medical revalidation on the behaviour of doctors and the culture of organisations within seven case study sites across England.

Commissioning and funding general practice

Our report argues for a new approach that brings together funding for general practice with funding for many other services. This would entail new forms of commissioning, with GPs innovating in how care is delivered. As England’s population both expands and ages, so the demands on primary care will grow. Within the current commissioning and funding system innovative models of primary care provision are already being used. This report describes examples of these through four case studies in different areas of England. It also highlights how the existing system is imperfectly understood, particularly regarding contracts.

Service transformation

This paper examines the transformation of mental health services in England and the relevance to current policy. Drawing on workshops with those involved in the changes and a review of published literature, the paper explores the context and factors that enabled change to happen in mental health. Mental health services have undergone radical transformation in the past 30 years. A community-based care model has largely replaced the acute and long-term care provided in large institutions.

NICE says drug for metastatic breast cancer is unaffordable for NHS

A drug for metastatic breast cancer should not be used in the NHS in England because it is not effective enough to justify its £90 000 (€110 000; $150 000) cost, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has said.
