This chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the history of healthcare in Great Britain and the role of the NHS. It reviews the book's argument with the aim of exploring what the NHS is like today and considers that health services may be reformed to deal with the problems identified in the previous chapters. It suggests that reforms that recognise the history of the NHS stand a better chance of working than those that appear to want to erase the past.
