What do the changes to the NHS mean for people with MS ?

From the MS Trust website:

On 12 July the coalition government launched its white paper Equity and excellence: Liberating the NHS to change the NHS in England.

The key principles are:
■The original values of the NHS remain: it will offer a comprehensive service, available to all, free at the point of use and based on clinical need, not the ability to pay.

■The government will increase health spending in real terms in each year of the current parliament.

■The government goal is an NHS which achieves results that are amongst the best in the world.
