What sort of service do people expect from the NHS? One of the feelings I have about the NHS is that the expecations far outweigh the ability to provide. Essentially, can we provide every "essential" operation and who decides that? Every medication? Service? Mental Health/Learning Disability/Community nursing/Community Mental Health? Where do we stop? This is a serious question so try not to get to excited about how blair and brown have done this or that, this is about expectations?
