Thousands will lose their jobs under the biggest shake-up of the NHS in 60 years.
Health Secretary Andrew Lansley said today that strategic health authorities and more than 150 primary care trusts across the country are to be “phased out”.
Management costs will be slashed by 45 per cent and up to £20 billion of efficiency savings made by 2014.
Mr Lansley published a White Paper which laid out the “hard truth” facing the NHS despite the coalition's promise to raise health service funding every year this Parliament. He said: “The NHS will employ fewer staff at the end of this Parliament.”
