Format: Electronic 

It is a background briefing on healthcare in London following the recent publication of the white paper Equity and Excellence: Liberating the NHS (here after referred to as “the white paper”). This paper does not consider in detail the implications of emerging policy – this will be set out in separate documents from the NHS Confederation.

London and its health services are unique. London encompasses the biggest health authority region in England, both in spend and the number of people served. It is also the most diverse, with 90 different ethnic minority groups making up over 30 per cent of the city’s population . London is home to some of the most wealthy, and most deprived, people in Britain, and its population is particularly young and mobile, with large numbers of people both migrating to and leaving the capital each year. All of these factors present particular challenges for healthcare services.
