    Key points A learning health system (LHS) is a way of describing a systematic approach to iterative, data-driven improvement.

    Findings Most hospitals are delivering good quality care and looking after patients well. The CQC report highlighted many examples of how hospitals are improving and continuing to improve the quality of care they offer, even though there are constraints.

    What needs to happen Above all we need to be honest with ourselves about the extent of the problems and the implications of the solutions. That requires an open and honest national conversation among politicians, patients and the public, healthcare professionals and policy makers, one which leads to action and meaningful change. What does a reformed system look like? A system fit for the twenty-first century must centre the needs of the whole person and of the whole population. This requires: Expanding workforce numbers Improving patient access to care across all settings.
