Side Effects: How Our Healthcare Lost Its Way - And How We Fix It

Pre-Order   Ships 25 August 2022

Description

With a single drug in the UK currently costing GBP340,000 per patient per year, or a gene therapy in the USA being costed at $1.2million, who should get such treatments and how can we begin to afford them? Should we all be entitled to timely mental health therapy? How should we care for our old?

As we grapple with the world's worst pandemic for a century, our minds are on our health more than ever. But what should we rightfully expect of doctors? In this original and thought-provoking book, Sir David Haslam explores what good healthcare should achieve and asks how we pay for it. Informed by patient stories and data from across the world - from US big pharma to Britain's NHS - this is an urgent and often moving examination of our most important asset: our health.
