In his first two interviews with the Press since becoming NHS England’s new Chief Executive, Simon Stevens has stressed the need to think creatively about improved patient outcomes.
He told the Daily Telegraph and Health Service Journal magazine that tailoring care models and solutions to the needs of different audiences is vital.
He explained that in some cases high quality care may require a more centralised approach – such as stroke services in major conurbations – whereas in other cases a local approach could be more beneficial, such as greater integration of care for older people involving local hospitals, GP services, community nursing and social care.
