Doing more with less: Britain’s healthcare funding challenges is an Economist Intelligence Unit briefing paper sponsored by BMI Healthcare. Andrea Chipman was the author of the report and Iain Scott was the editor. The findings and views expressed do not necessarily reflect those of the sponsor.
This paper took as a starting-point the 2002 and 2004 government-commissioned reports on the National Health Service by Sir Derek Wanless. Recent research by The King’s Fund, the Social Market Foundation and the National Health Service’s own institutions provided additional material for the report, along with separate Economist Intelligence Unit research. The author also conducted in-depth interviews with:
John Appleby, chief economist at The King’s Fund
Kevin Barron MP, head of the Health Select Committee in the House of Commons
Professor Ian Gilmore, president of the Royal College of Physicians
Professor Alan Maynard, an economist at the York Health Policy Group at York University and chairman of York NHS Trust
Professor Allyson Pollock, director of the Centre for International Public Health Policy at the University of Edinburgh
Claire Rayner, president of the Patients’ Association
David Stout, director of the Primary Care Trust Network at the NHS Confederation
Jon Sussex, deputy director of the Office of Health Economics
David Worskett, director of the NHS Partners’ Network at the NHS Confederation
