Organization Summary

The organization was originally proposed by Arthur Greenwood as England began reconstruction during the aftermath of World War II. Previously, healthcare was divided into regions, so this organization was proposed to consolidate all of the regional organizations into one cohesive group serving the nation equally. A man named Aneurin Bevan was given the position of Minister of Health to organize this health care reform. He opened NHS for the first time in 1948, and the organization provides essentially free healthcare services to all English citizens.
