The NHS: 70 years and counting

This event begins with an illustrated presentation to highlight the poor health of the population in post-war Britain.

Although Parliament was generally supportive of an NHS, there was strong resistance from some medics and many general practitioners. This will be followed by an overview of the significant changes that have taken place decade by decade. We will finish by asking what has been learnt from these significant changes and posing the ‘what ever next?’ question.

This is appropriate for all roles, grades and specialities who have an interest in, or relationship with health care in Britain.
