Advice to Government on London health services

  • A. H. Crisp
Extract

In October 1991 the then Secretary of State for Health, William Waldegrave, appointed Sir Bernard Tomlinson to act as adviser on health services in London. Early on it was agreed that Sir Bernard would also take account of the role of these services in teaching and research. Previous reports have focused on one or other aspect, e.g. the Todd Report (1966) and Flowers Working Party Report (1979) primarily considered teaching and research while the report of the London Health Planning Consortium (1979) mainly addressed provision of services. While the former two reports have been followed by extensive change in the organisation of medical academic activities in London, there has been much less change in health care delivery. For instance, primary care and community care are still seriously deficient in parts of London while high technology hospital based medical practice, sometimes providing a nationwide service, has survived and sometimes continued to develop in an entrepreneurial way. The problem is riven by academic and professional concerns of nationwide relevance and importance.
