Monitor statement on the Government’s response to the NHS Future Forum report

Responding to yesterday’s publication of the Government response to the NHS Future Forum report, Dr David Bennett, Chair of Monitor said:

“We welcome the Government’s swift response to Future Forum’s recommendations, and the clarity it brings to the Government’s intentions. The proposed changes make it clear that Monitor’s role will be to put patients first and to protect and promote their interests. In my view, this is absolutely right and we will do this with commitment and determination.

“We look forward to finding out the full details when the Government’s White Paper is published.”
