System under strain is a new report from NHS Confederation. It shows that increases in demand are not restricted to particular parts of the service and specific times of the year. It describes ways in which increasing demand in one part of the system can affect the performance of other NHS services elsewhere. It outlines how some NHS and social care providers have adapted their services to enable patients and service users to access care more efficiently.

 

Finally, it argues in support of a shift away from viewing performance solely as an organisational issue. It calls for regulators to support NHS and social care providers and commissioners in thinking more holistically about how the benefits of local provider and commissioner relationships can be maximised to meet soaring demand (NHS Confederation).
