RCP’s Future Hospital Model: An Update (RCP)

Summary

The Royal College of Physicians (RCP) earlier this month released a further document explaining their model for the future hospital. Roughly a year since publication of the original plan, and in readiness for the 2015 general election, the RCP presented their Five Point Plan for hospitals; with a broad set of recommendations for politicians. It involves:

  1. Removing financial and structural barriers to joined-up care.
  2. Investing in the delivery of good care.
  3. Prioritising “what works” in the NHS and improving what does not.
  4. Promoting public health (evidence-based legislation).
  5. Adopting the “Future Hospital” Model as a template for service re-design.
