Dr Youssef El-Gingihy – a GP – tells the story of how the NHS has been gradually converted into a market-based healthcare system over the past 25 years. This process is accelerating under the Coalition government and the very existence of a National Health Service is in danger. He fears that there will not be an NHS as our generation grows old and certainly not for our children.
Yet the British public remains largely unawares of this and the media, with few exceptions, have failed in their duty to inform them. The NHS is being broken up into an universal insurance system based on the American model. This book matters to all who use the NHS or are concerned by the privatisation of public services and the dismantling of equitable healthcare and welfare.
If you want to understand the real story behind the headlines and find out how you can preserve the NHS for the future then this book is essential reading.
