The BMJ Commission on the Future of the NHS

In its 75th year, the NHS has never been in a deeper crisis, and although the problems may seem insoluble, we believe that the central premise of the NHS – a health service free at the point of care for all the population – is worth fighting for. It is possible to create a vision for a society that prioritises outcomes related to health and wellbeing with the NHS at the heart of it.

The purpose of our NHS Commission is to identify key areas for analysis and bring those together in a publicly available report by January 2024.

Our commission will lay out that vision and make recommendations as to how we get there.
