Commons committee criticises ‘short-term’ cost-cutting

Public expenditure: thirteenth report of session 2010-12 - volume I: report, together with formal minutes, oral and written evidence.

This was an inquiry into the Nicholson Challenge which required the NHS to save £20bn. It criticises the NHS for taking short-term measures to make these savings but suggest that a more sustainable approach is needed. It identifies service integration over management change as a key example of this.
