With more than 5 million people on elective procedure waiting lists in the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic, the key challenge for NHS England is how it ensures patients have access to the correct treatment as quickly as possible.
Ration Watch is a campaign to highlight the lottery of care existing across the NHS. The campaign aims to highlight regional disparities and demonstrate the current levels of inequality across the NHS.
Ration Watch looks at NHS activity and waiting times to highlight the challenges some patients face.
The campaign will work with decision makers, whether councillors, MPs or NHS Directors to help improve patient access to treatment regardless of where you’re based in the UK.
Ration Watch is supported by the Medical Technology Group. The MTG is a coalition of patient groups, research charities and medical device manufacturers working to improve access to cost effective medical technologies for everyone who needs them. Our membership ranges from national charities to international companies.
