Five per cent of health professionals think the healthcare reforms have had a positive effect, according to a survey by parliamentary communications group Dods.
The survey had 3628 respondents, who were asked about their experiences of the reforms, the organisations driving change, and their expectations for the next 12 months. The results showed that NHS staff think the service is under heavy financial pressure, with only two per cent saying their organisation had sufficient financial resources. However, the survey also found that initiatives to create integrated services are working well in some areas, with 52 per cent of respondents saying that CCGs are 'driving change a lot', with NHS England and the CQC also mentioned.
As part of the survey, 100 members of parliament were asked for their views on the reforms. Thirty-nine said the impact of the reforms had been negative, of which 78 per cent were Labour and 10 per cent Conservative. No Labour MP said the impact of the reforms had been positive.
