The NHS occupies a unique place in British politics. Party leaders proclaim their lifelong love of it, MPs vow to fight for their local hospitals, but few dare spell out the difficult realities it faces not least, unprecedented pressure on funding in the next few years. Political denial is doing no one any favours. It is time to have an honest debate on hospitals in the new health service. On 6 December 2010 around 100 delegates, from politics, public service, business and the third sector, and representing all major political parties, listened to and debated the presentations of ten speakers. This provided the chance to hear the views of a range of leading figures and organisations and, in turn, provided these people with the opportunity to receive questions directly from a range of delegates. This report contains the transcripts of the discussions from this health summit.
