As my Rt. hon. Friend the Prime Minister set out in her speech on 18 June, this Government wants to ensure that the National Health Service is focused on the right targets - for both physical and mental health - which incentivise the best care and outcomes for patients, and have the broad support of our health professionals. This work is being taken forward as the NHS develops its long-term plan for the future to ensure the best possible health service.
Professor Steve Powis, National Medical Director of NHS England, has been asked to lead a review of clinical standards. NHS England has made no representations on possible findings of the review.
