About the event

Despite sometimes being hailed the ‘envy of the world’, the NHS is being outperformed by its European counterparts on most measures of care quality.

The debate over the NHS has become insular, with many politicians ignoring the success of alternative models of healthcare provision. Does the UK has much to learn from more market-orientated systems adopted overseas, which deliver for patients by embracing a plurality of both providers and methods of funding?

This panel discussion will bring together a range of views to discuss these questions.
