Welcoming the publication of the new NHS People Plan yesterday, the Health Secretary, Matt Hancock has promised to bust bureaucracy with a call for evidence.
Anyone who is currently working in health and social care, or has been until recently, is invited to contribute their views about how to rid the system of unwanted bureaucracy; that is processes that do little to add value but are time-consuming.
This can include tasks and processes in non-clinical disciplines as well as those directly providing care.
Matt Hancock says: "Our NHS people deserve to get on with caring for patients and this crisis has proved there’s bureaucracy that our healthcare system can do better without. So I’m urging people across the NHS and social care to speak up about what red tape you can do without to allow you to better deliver the high-quality care you are renowned for."
The consultation will run online until one minute before midnight on September 13, 2020. Click here to be redirected and give your views.
