Shirley Williams on the Today programme

Interesting to hear Shirley Williams on the Today programme talking about the Health & Social Care Bill currently going through Parliament.

I agree with her that the NHS as currently constituted provides a very high standard of health care throughout the population.

It is not the top 25% (by income) that we need to be concerned about.  They will always get the best service because of their greater purchasing power and lobbying skills.  It is the bottom 25% that needs to have completely free access to the best healthcare.
