In the midst of a massive Covid-19 epidemic, NHS England (NHSE) is driving through a far-reaching top-down reorganisation of the NHS, based on proposals in the Long Term Plan (2019).
We are concerned that the implications of these changes for the accountability, availability and access to services and values underpinning the management of services have been barely noted within a tumultuous 2020.
