England to refocus on quality of healthcare
The quality of a patient's care will become the central focus of the National Health Service in England, the government has announced. Hospitals and care teams will be rewarded for achieving high standards, and patients will be able to use quality reports to help them choose where to go for treatment. The measures were announced as part of a major review into the future of the health service in England conducted by surgeon and Health Minister Lord Darzi.
