Helping the NHS to change: Monitor’s annual plan for 2014/15

Monitor's annual plan encourages NHS providers to develop new ways of working and to take controlled risks in order to improve patient care.

The way Monitor regulates NHS foundation trusts will be reviewed with the aim of ensuring those organisations which provide healthcare are given room to innovate and take calculated risks, in order to provide better quality services for patients and better value for money.

The move is just one of several actions announced by Monitor in its annual plan, aimed at encouraging the NHS to develop services that better meet the needs of patients whilst doing more with the money it is given.
