Working at scale? I'd rather just do my job, thanks


Richard - I agree with you entirely, and as someone who sits on a CCG board I am becoming increasingly uncomfortable with my position. We are starting to commission what we are told to, and not what we want or need. I note that in HSJ today, Simon Stevens states that there is a "huge latent enthusiasm" for working at scale. What on earth does that mean? It has to be the king of all oxymorons. He seems to be suggesting that you and I would love to 'work at scale', but we just don't realise it yet!
