Intelligent and insightful view on the NHS,
This review is from: NHS Plc: The Privatisation of Our Health Care (Paperback)Everyone has an opinion on what is wrong with the NHS, and the solution to the continual problem of why pouring money into a vast industry doesn't improve its performance. Some say its really a perception issue, rather than one of how the NHS works in practice. Allyson Pollock's book is vital reading and gives a history of where the NHS came from and gives an insight into where it's going.
Along with Tony Robinson's views on the politics of the UK's biggest employer, the future looks unclear for patients if they're relying solely on the NHS to ensure really excellent healthcare provision.
From a personal point of view, a different approach to health which is more patient-centred needs to be adopted.... and soon.
