A bit of background
The white paper. Matt Hancock's introduction of it to Parliament is at https://www.gov.uk/government/speeches/the-future-of-health-and-care
Steadily, since coming into post, Simon Stevens has been encouraging health and social care bodies to work together ('integration'). Now there are shadow bodies called Integrated Care Systems, successors to the STPs. They have membership from health commissioners, providers, local authority - and some others(!) The white paper will give the ICSs a statutory role as commissioners. I sense that this part of the white paper is not particularly controversial. Other aspects:
Commissioning remains separate from Providing.
NHS England, Monitor, CQC, Health Education England are, I think, all rolled into one. But the Government's baby, National Institute for Health Protection seems to remain separate. (Less sure of this paragraph)
Return to ministerial accountability
Promises to bring forward legislation on adult social care and mental health.
