A crucial issue facing the NHS today is how the health service can balance the imperative to provide better care with the need to reduce costs overall.
This briefing brings together the views of NHS leaders and highlights the key messages arising from a roundtable held at the end of last year. These messages will be of interest to other NHS leaders who are tackling similar challenges, the national bodies and politicians supporting them in doing so, and members of the public who need to engage in this important debate.
The briefing was produced by a partnership of the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges, the Faculty of Medical Leadership and Management, the Healthcare Financial Management Association and the NHS Confederation
