The “Improving health and social care in London: supporting integrated commissioning” report indicates how the integration of support services for health and social care services could make available £50 per head, which could be used to support local planning and decision making. The London Boroughs and Clinical Commissioning Groups can thereby try to avoid wasting public money and time as a result of no longer replicating work unnecessarily.

The following King’s Fund report says four of the five most financially challenged NHS trusts in England are located in the capital and proposes that NHS England’s London office adopt city-wide planning, working with clinical commissioning groups. Hospitals would work together in large-scale networks, based on the three academic science networks which promote partnership working in the capital.
