The essence of community hospitals

The essence of community hospitals
Description
The statement from Simon Stevens about the role of small hospitals in the NHS is welcome, and unexpected. Those communities who are actively campaigning to keep their valued local hospitals are stopped in their tracks. Can this be right – does the NHS have room now for community hospitals as part of its infrastructure? A clear message from the CEO of the NHS would suggest so.

Blog: How can the 21st century public servant survive an era of perma-austerity?

Blog: How can the 21st century public servant survive an era of perma-austerity?
Description
Written by Catherine Mangan. We are launching the first theme from our 21st Century Public Servant project – the need to survive a seemingly unending period of austerity – to coincide with the Local Government Association conference, where austerity is a central theme. Our research with local government and other public service delivery organisations found that 'perma-austerity' is both inhibiting and catalysing change, as organisations struggle to balance short-term cost-cutting and redundancies with a strategic vision for change.
