In June 2015 the NHS Five Year Forward View set out the challenges facing the health and care system as it saw them. Three Success Regimes were launched to “protect and promote services for patients in local health and care systems that are struggling with financial or quality problems, or sometimes both”.
Overseen by NHS England, Monitor and the NHS Trust Development Authority and working closely with the Care Quality Commission which regulates health and care services, Success Regimes were required to “work across whole health and care economies … and address systemic issues as opposed to merely focusing on individual organisations”
We would argue that the West, North and East Cumbria Success Regime did not work across the whole health and care system and that the options proposed met with overwhelming opposition from the whole community. See responses gathered from representative bodies here
