Simon Stevens quotes

Jun 15 2017

NHS England is also taking practical action to drive greater value from taxpayers' growing investment in modern drug treatments, and that work is beginning to bear fruit.feedback

Apr 21 2017

We've got to tackle some of the waste which is still in the system.feedback

Apr 21 2017 - Obesity

A spoonful of sugar may help the medicine go down but spoonfuls of added sugar day-in, day-out mean serious health problems. It's great that following discussion with NHS England, big name retailers are agreeing to take decisive action, which helps send a powerful message to the public and NHS staff about the link between sugar and obesity, diabetes and tooth decay.feedback

Apr 17 2017

Some organisations and geographies have historically been substantially overspending their fair shares of NHS funding and their control totals. In effect they have been living off bail-outs arbitrarily taken from other parts of the country or from services such as mental health. This is no longer affordable or desirable.feedback

Mar 31 2017

We want lawyers out of hospital and doctors out of court. That's why personal injury lawyers are going to be banned from NHS premises following consultation on changes to the NHS Standard Contract.feedback

Mar 30 2017

There is going to be an incentive for hospitals to have a quiet word because the evidence shows that if you've had a heart attack or are in hospital for something, that's actually the moment when people are willing to think about making changes to their lifestyle.feedback

Mar 30 2017

We do expect, and we say here, that there is a tradeoff, we do expect that there will be some marginal lengthening of waiting lists.feedback

Mar 30 2017

We are saying that we expect that the number of operations that the NHS pays for will continue to go up, but we recognise that [while] right now about nine out of 10 people get their operations in under 18 weeks, in some parts of the country that will be under pressure. There is a trade-off here. We expect there will be some marginal lengthening of waiting lists, but this will still represent a strong, quick waiting times experience compared to 10 years ago, let alone 20.feedback

There's no doubt that coeliac disease is an important medical condition that's increasingly being recognised. But when you look at the list of prescribable items it extends to digestive biscuits, pizzas and other products – there are legitimate questions to be answered.feedback

Mar 28 2017

There's £114 million being spent on medicines for upset tummies, haemorrhoids, travel sickness, indigestion, that's even before you get on to the £22 million-plus on gluten-free that you can also now get at Morrisons, Lidl or Tesco's. We will be backing them in new national guidelines that say those should not routinely be prescribed on the NHS. Part of what we are trying to do is make sure that we make enough headroom to spend money on the innovative new drugs by not wasting it on these kind of items. The price of gluten-free alternatives has come down substantially.feedback

We do need capital; we've said that from the get go.feedback

Mar 03 2017

More older patients inevitably means more emergency admissions, and the pressures on A&E are being compounded by the sharp rise in patients stuck in beds awaiting home care and care home places. So there can no longer be an automatic assumption that it's OK to slash many thousands of extra hospital beds - unless and until there really are better alternatives in place for patients. That's why before major service changes are given the green light, they'll now need to prove there are still going to be sufficient hospital beds to provide safe, modern and efficient care locally.feedback
