The core of the National Health Service Next Stage Review has been a process led by working groups in every NHS region covering two thousand clinicians in total. The vision documents set out the priorities for improving health and health care in each NHS region over the next decade and the challenges that Lord Darzi’s final report will respond to shortly. These issues have been discussed with Lord Darzi during the review.
