Sir Bruce Keogh: HiSLAC findings could lead to ‘profound’ NHS change

Prof Sir Bruce Keogh, Medical Director of NHS England has said research projects such as HiSLAC could lead to the biggest policy change the NHS has seen. Speaking at the first HiSLAC Collaborators’ Meeting at the Royal College of Anaesthetists, Sir Bruce addressed clinicians and NHS managers from around the country.

“I believe the provision of seven-day NHS services is a matter of priorities and we have to think of new ways of doing things", he told the invited audience. 

“It is research like this that will solve the problem and help us get to a place of profound policy change, possibly the biggest since the development of the NHS more than 65 years ago”.

Sir Bruce has been a great supporter of HiSLAC, co-signing a letter of support and introduction to NHS Trust Medical Directors when the research project launched in early 2014.
