Unison welcomes Kings Fund report

UNISON, The UK's largest health union, welcomed a new report by the King's Fund, which shines a spotlight on the potential savings the NHS could make by sharing best practice between staff.

The union is warning that government plans for all hospitals to become independently run foundation trusts will only reduce opportunities for health workers to learn from each other. Foundation trusts will be set up in direct competition with each other, making it much tougher to share best practice.

This will not only hit opportunities to make savings, but also to raise standards across the NHS as a whole. More. Read the Kings Fund report.
