Description:
The Government published its ten-year health strategy, Quality and fairness: A health system for you, in November 2001. It contained ambitious targets to improve services and reduce inequalities with far-reaching proposals on everything from bed numbers to hospital admissions, new arrangements for local primary care, health prevention, hospital development, and reviews of existing structures. IMPACT welcomed·the strategy but said it would be judged on how successfully it achieved equity in health service delivery. When the strategy was published the Govemment has said its implementation would depend on future economic conditions. Since then, the worsening budgetary climate has placed a major question mark over Quality and Fairness, and dampened expectations of improved services. It has become difficult to align the vision contained in the health strategy - on service quality, equity, and people management - with the attitude adopted by the Government over the last year.
