This briefing covers the current challenges facing the NHS: increased pressure, plunging staff morale and impending funding crises, and how privatisation and marketisation have fundamentally damaged standards in healthcare. This pamphlet outlines how pressures could be lessened by eliminating costly competition processes. By repealing the Health and Social Care Act, integrating social care and boosting the wages of NHS staff the service will be able to begin to turn around the damage inflicted by top-down reorganisation.
