What Doesn't Kill Me: Opportunities for Better Healthcare in the 2020s. Edited by Dr Nathan Hodson, Dr Anna Harvey and Milo Barnett. Foreword by Rt Hon Alan Milburn.
In 2020-21, the NHS has survived the greatest challenge in its history: with the dedication, skill and leadership of its staff rising to the pandemic's many crises despite fatal blunders at the top of government. Our health service's founding principles have never been more important than they are today.
The question now is how to strengthen healthcare in Britain for the rest of the 2020s, and the coming decades, as we rebuild. The chapters in this pamphlet explore a range of opportunities for the healthcare system to not just survive, but thrive.
In the Young Fabian Health Network's new pamphlet, our members give their expert perspectives on how to achieve this - covering areas including mental health and disabilities, maternal and child health, universal social care, devolution of health policy, artificial intelligence and development of new medicines. The pamphlet also features a foreword from Rt Hon Alan Milburn: former Labour MP, Secretary of State for Health in 1999-2003, and Chair of the Social Mobility Commission 2012-2017.
