Mr Brian Edwards Discussion – Can we afford an NHS?

A departure from our normal talk, as Brian stimulated a discussion about the amount we spend on the NHS and how it is spent. The UK now spends over 9% of GDP on the NHS and with the nation’s debt position it is clear that the NHS must find its share. How we do this proves to bring into question ethics, morals, clinical decisions and not least politics. A worthwhile hour which made us all think how we might tackle the problems!
