NHS - National Health Service

The NHS was born on July 5, 1948. When health Secretary Aneurin Bevan opened Park Hospital in Manchester it was the climax of a hugely ambitious plan to bring good healthcare to all. For the first time hospitals, doctors, nurses, pharmacists, opticians and dentists were brought together under one umbrella organisation to provide services that are free for all at the point of delivery. The central principles are clear: the health service will be available to all and financed entirely from taxation, which means that people pay into it according to their means.

Today, the NHS is divided into two sections: primary and secondary care. Primary care is generally regarded as a “frontline” service. It is the first point of contact for most people and is delivered by a wide range of independent contractors such as GPs, dentists, pharmacists and optometrists. Secondary care is known as acute health care and can be either elective care or emergency care. Elective care means planned specialist medical care or surgery, usually following referral from a primary 3r community health professional such as a GP.
