Tough times, tough choices: Being open and honest about NHS finance

06 / 03 / 2013

The NHS faces an unprecedented financial dilemma: the supply of funding is struggling to match the growing rate of demand for healthcare. To address this, the NHS Confederation has published a report that lays out the choices we face to guarantee the delivery of safe, effective and sustainable health services. 

This report sets out options, not solutions. These choices are not pain-free and some may prove too difficult to swallow. The public will be better placed to understand and engage in a national debate if we are open about what happens, where, and why. 

View the four-page briefing for a summary of the choices.
