The Kings Fund Report- The Reconfiguration of Clinical Services

The pressure to reconfigure clinical services is likely to increase. A new report from The King’s Fund aims to help those leading major reconfigurations to ensure that change is as evidence-based as possible. It takes as its starting point all reviews conducted by NCAT between 2007 and 2012; the first review of such a large number of clinical reconfigurations within the UK. It investigates five drivers (quality, workforce, cost, access and technology) of previous reconfigurations in 13 service areas including whole trust and acute medical services, also summarising the research evidence and professional guidance available in each. www.kingsfund.org.uk/projects/reconfiguring-clinical-services and a summary of findings for acute medical services is at www.kingsfund.org.uk/projects/reconfiguring-clinical-services/acute-medical
