Our panel of experts will be live online from noon today to discuss the challenges of change and whether managers will be able to achieve efficiency savings. Post a question now, tweet us @GdnHealthcare, or watch the debate as it happens.
We've also a lovely piece by Dorset pharmacist Mike Hewitson, in which he describes his typical day:
My pharmacy is located in a small rural town and has been independently owned for its entire 222 year history. I am immensely proud to be the custodian of such an important community resource, which has been in our hands for the last 4 years.
The Guardian reports on how a teenager diagnosed herself with cancer after watching her illness depicted in a Cameron Diaz movie.
And there's also an update on Nicholas Crace, the former charity director who has become the UK's oldest living kidney donor, after giving away one of his 'Formula One' kidneys at the age of 83.
