This is a penetrating and deeply worrying article from the Guardian. It’s a good read. Check it out!
Since the election, Scotland and the EU referendum have dominated the news but this article reminds us the size of the NHS reform challenge. Reforming the whole public sector is a massive risk. I would expect Oliver Letwin, now senior minister responsible for the Cabinet Office to turn to the regular cronies in the big consultancies.
Personally, I think that we need a public risk register, along with mitigating tactics – this is true open government. It’s only when the scale and likelihood of these risks are properly understood that the way forward will be clear.
