Socialist Worker

60th anniversary of the NHS

Issue No. 2107

The NHS turns 60 on 5 July and the BBC is marking the occasion with a week of TV and radio programmes looking at the history, development and current state of Britain’s health service.

The series will raise questions about the increased privatisation of the service, polyclinics and how “national” the health service really is.
