visited and spoken to 1,500 national health service staff in 17 NHS organisations across the country;
taken part in a nationwide day of detailed discussions on the priorities for the NHS with 1,000 patients, public and health and social care staff in nine different towns and cities;
met with representatives of 250 stakeholder groups representing the full diversity of our population and staff;
read more than 1,400 letters and emails from people up and down the country; and
in preparation for the second stage of the review, brought together over 1,000 clinicians in groups in every part of the country to focus on discussing how best to plan and provide care for patients.
The interim report is based on these views, visits and discussions.
