Summary:This programme looks at some of the government's controversial health service reforms and is presented by Emma Freud from a modern practice in Trowbridge, Wilts, where the fund-holding system is working. Emma also presents a quirky look at the history of the NHS. Dr Farine Clarke reports from down the road in Bath, where there's an admissions crisis in the local hospital and GPs are finding it increasingly difficult to get treatment for seriously ill patients. In part 2 the programme looks at Trowbridge in more detail and Chris Ham sums up on the whole situation.
