This is the interim report from the independent Commission on the Future of Health and Social Care in England. In it, the commission explains why it believes England needs a single health and social care system, with a ring-fenced, singly commissioned budget, and more closely aligned entitlements. Drawing on accounts from patients and their families, the commission argues that the current system is no longer fit for purpose.
