Example text

But GPs, outpatient services, inpatient services and accident and emergency services also show very substantial gaps. 6 Even having a friend or relative who has had contact with a particular health service improves satisfaction, although not by as much as personal contact. The NHS seems to be its own best advocate. 3. But the other services need to find ways of convincing non-patients that they really are improving – some 27 per cent have had no contact with outpatient services, while the figure is 52 per cent for inpatient services and 57 per cent for A&E departments.

As we might anticipate, there is also a relationship between national identity and support for English independence. But again the relationship is only a modest one. Amongst those who choose British as their identity, 11 per cent favour independence for England, compared with 22 per cent of those who state they are English. 16. We undertook a loglinear analysis of the combined data for the two years. 012. 17. Apart from the informal analysis presented in the next paragraph, we also used loglinear analysis to test for evidence of a statistically significant change between 2000 and 2007 in the relationship between national identity and (i) attitudes towards Scottish MPs voting on English laws, and (ii) Scotland’s share of spending.

1 implies a rather rosy picture of public attitudes towards the NHS. Still, the absence of further expansion removes a vehicle for easy improvements in health services so may leave the NHS with a harder task of fulfilling expectations in the years to come. But we should also consider another possibility. A decline in support for increased taxation may be due to a view that spending more (as the government has done over the last seven years) has not improved the NHS. Why throw good money after bad?
