Kate Andrews appears on BBC's This Week

Kate Andrews, News Editor at the Institute of Economic Affairs has appeared on BBC This Week to discuss the NHS following President Trump’s tweet about it earlier in the week.

In the interview Kate argues that healthcare provision is not a black and white issue. Despite increased funding in real terms the NHS remains in critical condition in vital areas – the winter flu caused yet another crisis, resolved only by cancelling 50,000 operations in the month of January. Most of the developed world has adopted the principle of universal access to healthcare, through other means. The centralised, bureaucratic monopoly that is the NHS is no longer the best medicine.
