NHS will face unprecedented challenges over the next five years

Description
"It remains to be seen whether the 'Devo Manc' model will work and whether its governance model is robust. Whether or not this model is feasible, further integration of health and social care is desirable, not least because cuts in social care have knock-on consequences in the health sector."
