Roy Lilley

Under the Government’s proposals for NHS reform Clinical Commissioning groups will take a great deal of responsibility for what is provided by the NHS and how it is provided. It isn’t yet very clear how this would operate, but there are lots of concerns about conflicts of interest, and about the nature of the contractual arrangements. This seminar will be a fairly open discussion about how these arrangements might operate and how they might impinge on the relationships between doctors and patients.
