New NHS: Modern, dependable
New NHS: Modern, dependableA 1997 UK Department of Health White Paper which delineated how the internal market (for healthcare services in the UK) would be replaced by a system called “integrated care”, based on partnership and driven by performance.

The needs of patients would be central to the new system.
