Dealing with financially unsustainable providers

This paper from the King’s Fund explains why a failure regime is required in the NHS.

It outlines how the failure regime for NHS trusts (currently being applied in South London) works and how the failure regime for foundation trusts introduced by the Health and Social Care Act 2012 will work in future.

The paper concludes with a discussion of key issues that need to be resolved if providers of acute services to the NHS are to be put on a financially sustainable footing.
