Call You and Yours: Costing the NHS
What should the NHS look like in the future?
NHS England says that if the current model of care continues in England there could be a funding gap of around £30bn between now and 2021. They are calling for a public debate to find ways of renewing and revitalising the NHS. But, can the UK still afford a health service that's free at the point of use?
We want your views: what do you want from a national health service in the future . . .
Would you be prepared to pay for some of the things the NHS currently provides for free?
Are there services which you think the NHS should stop providing altogether?
Or should we just accept that we will have to pay more for a national health service, which is free at the point of use, in the future?
In 'Costing the NHS' Julian hears from those who run the NHS and the bodies which represent doctors, nurses and social services. On Call You and Yours Julian wants your views. Are you a doctor, a nurse, or someone who uses the NHS regularly?
