5th July 2023 marks the 75th anniversary of the creation of the National Health Service,

At a time of immense pressure on services, and widespread fears for the sustainability of the service, social surveys continue to suggest tremendous support among the UK population for the ‘founding principles’ of the healthcare system.

Join us to discuss new research on public attitudes to the NHS as it turns 75, and the significance of these attitudes for the future. Speakers include:

  • Prof. John Curtice, Government & Public Policy, University of Strathclyde, presenting new analysis of the British Social Attitudes Survey conducted with Dr Chis Deeming
  • Leonora Merry, Director of Communications, Nuffield Trust, reflecting on her experience of communicating BSAS data on the NHS to media and policy audiences
  • Dr Ellen Stewart, Centre for Health Policy, University of Strathclyde, presenting work from her new book How Britain Loves the NHS.
