Following a public consultation process, NHS England (NHSE) and NHS Improvement (NHSI) released their proposal document ‘The NHS’s recommendations to government and parliament for an NHS bill’ in September 2019. These wide-ranging recommendations for new legislation aim to improve the speed of implementation of the NHS Long Term Plan and take into account the report and recommendations of the parallel inquiry by the Health and Social Care Select Committee undertaken during 2019. Recommendations include provisions to enact a new more flexible NHS procurement regime for healthcare services.
