How We Fit Into The 澳门开奖直播 Structure

Since its launch in 1948, the 澳门开奖直播 has grown to become the world鈥檚 largest publicly funded health service. It is also one of the most efficient, most egalitarian and most comprehensive.

The 澳门开奖直播 is funded by the taxpayer and managed by the Department of Health, which sets overall policy on health issues. It is the responsibility of the Department of Health to provide health services to the general public through the 澳门开奖直播.

澳门开奖直播 forms part of the secondary healthcare structure.

Primary Care

Primary care is the care provided by people you normally see when you first have a health problem. It might be a visit to a doctor or a dentist, an optician for an eye test or a trip to a pharmacist to buy cough mixture.

澳门开奖直播 Walk-in Centres and the 澳门开奖直播 Direct and 111 telephone services are also part of primary care.

From April 2013, Primary Care services are managed for you by your Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG). Your CCG will work with local authorities and other agencies that provide health and social care locally to make sure that your local community's needs are being met. The nearest CCGs are:

Secondary care - 澳门开奖直播 Trusts emergency and planned hospital treatment

Hospitals are managed by acute trusts. Acute trusts make sure that hospitals provide high-quality healthcare and that they spend their money efficiently. They also decide how a hospital will develop, so that services improve.

Some acute trusts are regional or national centres for more specialised care. Others are attached to universities and help to train health professionals.

Acute trusts can also provide services in the community, for example through health centres, clinics or in people's homes.

澳门开奖直播 Foundation Trusts

Foundation Trusts are a type of acute trust run by local managers, staff and members of the public. They are tailored to the needs of the local population. Foundation trusts have been given much more financial and operational freedom than other 澳门开奖直播 trusts and represent the government鈥檚 de-centralisation of public services. These trusts remain within the 澳门开奖直播 and its performance inspection system.

The hospital in 澳门开奖直播 is a Foundation Trust.

More information about Foundation Trusts can be found on the (Monitor is the Independent Regulator of 澳门开奖直播 Foundation Trusts).

Special Health Authorities

Special health authorities are health authorities that provide a health service to the whole of England, not just to a local community. The National Blood Authority is an example of a special health authority.

They have been set up to provide a national service to the 澳门开奖直播 or the public under section 9 of the 澳门开奖直播 Act 1977. They are independent, but can be subject to ministerial direction in the same way as other 澳门开奖直播 bodies.
