Health and social care bill gains royal assent

The health and social care bill today gained royal assent to become the Health and Social Care Act (2012).

The core principles of the act mean that doctors and nurses will be able to tailor services for their patients, more choice will be given to patients over how they are treated, and bureaucracy in the NHS will be reduced.
