Government to publish plans to  overhaul much of 2012 Health and Social care Act

Ministers are to press ahead with plans to assume more power over the NHS in England. The Secretary of State for Health and Social Care Matt Hancock, will set out plans in a white paper to create a “more innovative and responsive” NHS and said he wanted to target “burdensome bureaucracy”. This would also reduce/ replace many of the rules put in place by the 2012 Health and Social Care Act, under the previous Conservative government led by David Cameron and the then Health Secretary Andrew Lansley.
