PUBH 3002 LCSU

Britain's NHS: The Cost of Free Health Care
This course is intended as a lively and informative introduction to the British National Health Service. Established in 1948, Britain’s NHS owns the vast majority of the country’s hospitals, blood banks, and ambulance operations, employs most specialist physicians, and has made medical care available to every resident for free. Beloved by the British, the NHS remains controversial in the U.S., where it has been used as a lightning rod to inflame the health care debate, raising the specter of “socialized medicine.” This course will focus on building a nuanced understanding of the National Health Service. Students will study how the NHS emerged from the gradual nationalization of health services during World War II, and how it has grown to become Europe’s largest employer. They will gain an understanding of the governing structure of the NHS, and how policies are determined and carried out within it. Through screenings, class exercises, debates, and field trips, students will research the major challenges facing the NHS, including managing limited resources, the demands of a growing and aging population, providing community care, as well as the current reform efforts spearheaded by the Coalition. They will pay particular attention to the ethical dilemmas raised by a nationalized health system, e.g. setting guidelines for the provision of life extending medicines and the setting of targets for emergency admissions. Guest speakers will include NHS practitioners; field trips will include an outing to a general practitioners service and local hospita,l and the opportunity to talk to frontline health workers and NHS patients.
