The Times Health Commission has reported and made ten recommendations to save the NHS. These include establishing a National Care System which would give everyone the right to appropriate support in a timely fashion. 

The Commission say the National Care System would be equal but different from the NHS and should be administered locally and delivered by a mixture of the public and private sectors.

Other recommendations include creating patient passports, faster mental health treatment for the young and writing off student loans for doctors who stay within the health service.

The Commission was set up in January last year to find solutions to the crisis facing the health and social care system in England, using an evidence-based approach and supported by a group of expert commissioners from the worlds of medicine, business, policy, science, food and sport.
