It was originally established as part of a wider reform of social services and funded by a system of National Insurancethough receipt of healthcare was never contingent upon making contributions towards the National Insurance Fund. Private health care was not abolished but had to compete with the NHS.
As part of a wider reform of social provision it was originally thought that the focus would be as much about the prevention of ill-health as it was about curing disease.
The NHS for example would distribute baby formula milk fortified with vitamins and minerals in an effort to improve the health of children born in the post war years as well as other supplements such as cod liver oil and malt.

The NHS has been through many reforms since This necessitated the detailed costing of activities, something which the NHS had never had to do in such detail, and some felt was unnecessary.

This personal service idea would introduce regular health check-ups so that the population is screened more regularly.Federal Health Care Reform: Large Group Eligible Employers and Moving into Safe Harbor (Part II) August 27, / 0 Comments / in Benefits, Health Care / by Nina Clarkson For employers with 50 or more employees, there will be some penalties assessed for failure to comply with certain aspects of the new federal health care law.
