Is the NHS financially sustainable?


10 March 2017


The NHS is in the middle of its most financially parsimonious decade in its history. While it continues to treat and care for increasing numbers of people every year, after five years of tight funding, (and despite a huge overspend last year) headline waiting times targets are being missed by increasing numbers of health care organisations. There’s no doubt the NHS currently faces a short term crisis. But what about the longer term? As the NHS approaches its 70th birthday, is this the beginning of the end for Britain’s best loved institution? Is the NHS financially sustainable, or do we have to start thinking of more radical ways to pay for health care?
