I was commissioned (see what I did there?!) to do two infographics for the launch of the ‘new’ NHS, one on NHS Commissioning and one on how the NHS is monitored or safeguarded. While I’m not sure whether they were used, and regardless of my political feelings on the matter, understanding the changes is going to be a useful thing for pretty much everyone. Both infographics are meant to be read alongside this booklet: the Health and Care System Explained.
How the NHS is monitored
I hope this comes in handy to patients, doctors, nurses, commissioners and whoever else is out there who wants to understand a bit more about what’s going on with the NHS, what commissioning and the various Commissioning Boards and groups mean, and a little bit of who looks after what.
