Who runs the new NHS? A quick interactive guide to the reforms from April 2013

How much do you know about the big picture of the NHS reforms? This interactive Prezi presentation gives you the key facts on all the important bodies, and how they relate to each other.

 The Prezi was produced by GPonline.com's sister website Medeconomics, the essential online guide to practice management.

The reforms of the controversial Health and Social Care Act 2012 came in to effect on 1 April 2013, and have been seen as the most complex and wide-ranging changes to the NHS since the formation of the service in 1948.

The aims include making clinicians, not managers, responsible for designing services, and increasing the involvement of patients in decisions about their care. Ministers also hope to improve quality of care by introducing more competition among providers, and offering patients more choice in the services available to them.

The scale of the changes can be seen in a calculation by the National Audit Office, showing that while 170 NHS bodies were closed, 240 new organisations were created.
