Abstract

Talking about the NHS as if it is a single organisation is both inaccurate and unhelpful, writes Oz Gore, not least because it creates the impression that a cash influx can solve all 'its' problems. He argues that in order to keep healthcare services in national hands, we ought to first challenge the popular semantic imagination of the NHS.
