Responding to today’s NHS performance figures, Danny Mortimer, deputy chief executive of the NHS Confederation, which represents health organisations in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, and chief executive of NHS Employers, said:

“The current system is unsustainable: we simply do not have the resources to deliver what the public now expects.

“Performance against these targets shows the system is under pressure and needs transformation and investment, which could include moving more care outside of hospitals.

“In many areas of the country, authentic attempts to create services based on new models of care can be misconstrued as thoughtless cuts.

“Politicians must be willing to engage with the NHS, local government and local communities in helping to reshape local services.

“They should be more willing to fund health and social care, more supportive of radical change, more prepared to back services not buildings and more courageous in supporting new models of care that bring about better outcomes for patients.”
