The NHS at 70

To mark the 70th birthday of the NHS on 5th July 2018, the BBC asked a selection of organisation to look at five central issues currently facing the NHS.

The Health Foundation, King's Fund, Institute of Fiscal Studies & Nuffield Trust explored these issues in funding, the state of social care, the public’s expectations of the NHS, and the potential of technology to change things in the future.

"On its 70th birthday the NHS faces significant challenges; ongoing workforce and funding pressures need to be met with long-term thinking to ensure that quality of care is not compromised in the future." - Health Foundation
