Zoom event – Can the NHS be Saved? Lord Norman Warner

The NHS is plagued by extensive and deep-seated issues, and faces immense pressures.  Lord Norman Warner (HF 1971-73) will talk about his recommendations for a change programme that could reverse the radical decline, developed for his work with the Social Market Foundation.

Lord Warner’s analysis is that the NHS is struggling to recover from the devastating impact of the pandemic and Brexit. The issues are deep-seated and more extensive than the pandemic’s treatment backlog. The future sustainability of a tax-funded comprehensive NHS is now open to doubt. He believes that politicians must be much braver in making major changes to the way the country structures and delivers health and care services and has a number of recommendations about how they and we can address these issues.

Norman Warner is an independent Peer and former health minister in the Blair government. He was a member of the coalition government’s Commission on Funding Social Care. He was a senior policy adviser to the Home Secretary after the 1997 Election and Chairman of the Youth Justice Board, responsible for reforming the youth justice system. He has chaired government enquiries and public bodies, as well as charities. He has been a senior civil servant and worked in local government. His memoir, In Pursuit of Competence: A Life as a Westminster Nomad, was published in 2022.
