Published: 23/02/2012

In this video interview, The Guardian Columnist Polly Toynbee explores who should hold responsibility for making rationing decisions in health care – including the role of the public – and considers the potential for local, clinically-led variation in the provision of NHS services.

Polly spoke at the Nuffield Trust and The Royal College of Surgeons of England debate: Could the NHS further restrict the services it provides to offer a core package of services for all patients?, in February 2012.
