With the pressure of an ageing population and medical advancements enabling people to live longer, the State can no longer afford to provide a comprehensive National Health Service. Consequently, the role of the charity in funding health care provision in England and Wales will inexorably increase. This will raise opportunities for health trusts but also difficulties, both legal and managerial. Charity in the NHS: Policy and Practice explains the practical, legal and managerial implications of using charities as a means of funding health care. It examines the roots of health care funding, highlights possible policy developments and assesses the associated advantages and disadvantages including: how to obtain charitable status; the changing duties and responsibilities of charity trustees; how charity funds can be amalgamated; investment and commercial opportunities; the tax and VAT implications, precedents and relevant statutory materials. Available on 28 days' approval.
