Speaker(s): Rt Hon Patricia Hewitt MP
Chair: Professor Alistair McGuire

Recorded on 14 June 2007 at Old Theatre, Old Building

In this lecture, Patricia Hewitt will reflect on the achievements and lessons learnt from the last ten years of investment and reform in the health service. She will set out how, over the coming decade, the NHS can rise to the challenge of delivering the best health and healthcare for patients, and the best value for money for taxpayers. Ms Hewitt will also tackle head on proposals for alternative ways of funding healthcare, such as co-payments, and demonstrate how a universal, tax-funded NHS can remain 'the best insurance policy in the world'.
