This book weighs up the successes and failures of the National Health Service in the United Kingdom, and examines the conflicts which have driven the Health Service for over fifty years. It looks at recent responses to the apparent failure of health care in the United Kingdom, and concludes that the NHS has successfully met the challenges it faced when founded over 60 years ago, and is likely to continue to meet the changing health needs of the population.
