Independent Nurse;11/18/2013, p3
The author discusses the arguments behind the need for Great Britain's National Health Service (NHS) to change, emphasizing the importance of determining the manner the change should happen or what a future NHS should look like. He references the argument of Helen Bevan that fear is not a good driver of innovation in her work on the NHS Change Model. He emphasizes the city of Leeds' burning ambition, where health inequalities are lessened and health outcomes are improved.
