Not only has the NHS failed its patients, but it also has had an impact on the UK's national wealth. A vibrant healthcare economy in the UK earns money for the country by attracting paying patients from around the world, by attracting people who want train in the healthcare sector, and creates competitive healthcare and pharmaceutical companies that employ people in the UK.

The British Government has made a determined effort to solve two of the three problems that afflict the NHS- insufficient money and no policy to drive effective resource allocation. But the Government has failed to tackle the remaining problem- dysfunctional organization and poor management of the NHS.

In this controversial new book the author looks at the problems the NHS is facing, and provides new ides for radical reform.

"This is a powerful challenge to the conventional wisdom about choice and competition as dangers to the NHS. It makes a strong case  that patient choice and competition are essential both for improving services now and for creating incentives to use innovation in the future. It should be essential reading for managers and health professionals who want to understand the real choices facing the NHS." Nick Bosanquet, Professor of  Health Policy, Imperial College.
