Rather than improving efficiency, the reforms imposed on the NHS have increased bureaucracy, reduced patient choice, limited the range of core services, and led to inequity of treatment.
In this paper I examine how the medical profession might help to solve these problems.
Priorities must be set for health care since no government can afford all the possibilities offered by medical science.
It is essential to forge a consensus of patients, carers, professionals, the public, and government if a system of priorities is to be equitable and just.
