Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg, says the Government should not back off its planned reorganisation of the NHS despite a critical report from MPs. Experts believe overhauling the whole system while attempting to save money has confused the issue.

HSMC's Professor Jon Glasby commented on this story in an interview with the Press Association. For HSMC, the focus should be on designing whole systems change - and the current reorganisation could prove a distraction from what's really needed.
