A public roundtable on the NHS and public service reform has been organised by the Centre for Social Sciences as part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science.
The ‘Whose NHS?’ event brings together members of the public, policy advisers, health care professionals and social scientists to discuss and debate some of the key controversies in the ongoing process of health care reform in the UK.
Does choice and competition improve standards? Does choice create efficiency? Does choice create equitable outcomes? Who is able to exercise choice and who is not? Will the new NHS listen more to patients? Will the public see any difference in how they are treated?
The ‘Whose NHS?’ event will provide an opportunity for members of the public to participate directly in this debate, hear the arguments for and against reforms and ask questions to a panel of distinguished experts.
Full details of the event can be found here.
