The mutual future of our National Health Service – Respublica’s report

Front Cover Of ReportA radical overhaul of public service health – with mutualism and
integration at its heart could deliver savings of £4.5bn to the National Health Service.

That’s the conclusion of a report Power to the People: The mutual future of our National Health Service that has been produced by the think tank Respublica and supported by benenden health.    

The report recommends that health mutuals, such as benenden health, represent a balanced solution between public and private models and should play a much needed integrator role to help deliver ‘whole-person care’ and make the necessary efficiencies. The £4.5bn savings would be made from treating more patients in the community, at home and in more specialist settings.

Marc Bell, Chief Executive of benenden health, said: “This report confirms what we, as a mutual healthcare provider, see every day: the NHS is being crippled by the current epidemic of lifestyle diseases and non-essential procedures. The public pays for and deserves a free national health service, but the harsh reality is that this is only now viable if a complementary healthcare provision is put in place that supports the NHS.

“As ResPublica recognises, mutual healthcare providers such as Benenden Health offer this ideal complementary provision, which would help keep the NHS free at the point of entry. The benefits of the report recommendations are significant – they give the Government the Holy Grail: a truly sustainable national health service that does not cost the Government more or involve taxing the public further.”
