    Abstract

    Geographical boundaries have always been significant in the NHS. The planned reconfiguration of NHS regions including the establishment of a pan-London region, will have consequences across the whole of the service. The proposed changes will strengthen the power of central government in terms of policy and resource allocation. It is not clear whether boundary changes have any impact on patient care. Boundary changes create pressure for further reorganizations.
