This report from UK think tank The King’s Fund discusses the results of the British social attitudes survey.

The 2023 survey recorded the lowest levels of satisfaction since the survey began in 1983 – only 24% of the public are satisfied with the NHS, and only 13% are satisfied with social care.

Despite low levels of public satisfaction, a large majority of the public still support the principles of the NHS.

48% of the public would support the government increasing taxes and spending more on the NHS.
