Abstract:

"The 70th anniversary of the NHS is a moment to celebrate. The NHS holds a unique place in the nation's heart, cherished for the way it has transformed our health and life expectancy. Our health system is widely seen as the most cost-effective and equitable in the world and its values and ethos are as important today as when it was founded. But the NHS is under immense strain, as funding is squeezed and the challenges posed by an ageing population increases. How then can we ensure that the NHS is fit for the future? How should we build on its achievements, while continuing to innovate? How can we best fund it to ensure that it remains a sustainable service, free at the point of use? Can we make the vital shift from cure to preventions? Do we need fresh reforms to ensure that managers, frontline staff and patients can shape the NHS's future? This collection explores the choices for policy-makers, politicians and those who work in and use the NHS at this crucial point in its history"--Back cover.
