The first NHS England “Annual review 2013-14: a year of putting patients” outlines highlights of this organisation’s activities and impact on the NHS.
NHS England publishes Annual Review. London: NHS England, September 16th 2014.
“Without doubt, the NHS is facing one of the most challenging times in its history. We are treating more patients in our hospitals than ever before – with 1.5 million people being referred to treatment every month and, since 2010, our hospitals are now performing 2,000 more operations a day. GPs are under increasing pressure – with one million people seeing their GP every working day. And there has been a big increase in A&E attendances – with the number of attendances having risen by two million over the last ten years to around 16 million a year”.
