The Liberal Party, Health Policy and the Origins of the NHS
The familiar story of the NHS has it that the health service is a Labour achievement, dating from the Attlee administration of 1945–51. But in reality the Liberal governments of the early twentieth century helped to lay the foundations of the NHS, and the welfare state as a whole.
Join Dr Chris Renwick (University of York) and Lord Kenneth O. Morgan to discuss the Liberal contribution to health policy and the origins of the NHS. Chair: Baroness Judith Jolly.
