NHS Alliance - Action Summit
"The NHS is not sustainable," says Chairman of NHS Alliance
In an interview at the NHS Alliance Action Summit and as part of the "Breaking Boundaries and Beyond" news-style programme, Leading GP and Chairman of the NHS Alliance, Dr Mike Dixon claims the NHS has become a consumer service led by price and that communities need to invest in it to make it work in the future.
"Breaking Boundaries and Beyond" is an in-depth online programme produced by ITN Productions in partnership with the NHS Alliance. It's for the healthcare sector and involves interviews, news reports and sponsored editorial profiles of some of the leading organisations and people in the sector.
Dr Mike Dixon says, "We've ended up making the NHS a consumer service where everyone goes along and gets the most out of. That's not sustainable." NHS Chief Executive, Rick Stern claims the Government needs to put more resource behind its five-year plan which puts GPs and primary care at the heart of the service.
The overriding theme of the NHS Alliance Action Summit is positive progression of the NHS, and creating a more relationship-led service where the old boundaries between health care, social care, community pharmacy and hospitals are broken down.
