New NHS regulator 'risks failure'
In a report examining Andrew Lansley's proposals for Monitor, the NHS regulator, the health thinktank says the health bill expands the regulator's role from overseeing NHS foundation trusts with a set of "wide-ranging new powers" that will allow economic supervision of the entire health sector.
Under the health secretary's plans, Monitor will become responsible for setting prices for NHS-funded services, ensuring competition works in the health service and maintaining essential services if hospitals go bust. The new body will have 500 staff and a budget of £82m a year.
