IHPN responds to latest British Social Attitudes Survey on NHS

Responding to the latest British Social Attitudes survey (BSA) published today by The King’s Fund and the Nuffield Trust, showing that public satisfaction with the NHS has fallen to the lowest level ever recorded, David Furness, Director of Policy at the Independent Healthcare Providers Network (IHPN), said: 

“Today’s figures, which show the lowest levels of public satisfaction with the NHS on record, are not easy reading and are testament to the enormous challenges currently facing the health service.

“For decades now, the independent sector has worked with the NHS to deliver high quality, universal care which is free at the point of use for patients. This commitment to supporting the NHS is stronger than ever, and independent providers are ready and willing to play are part in delivering what really matters to the public – tackling the NHS backlogs and providing high quality and accessible patient care.”
