How have public attitudes to the NHS changed over the past three decades? If you want to know whether the British public has changed its views about health care over the past three decades, then there is no better place to look than the British Social Attitudes (BSA) survey.
Every year since 1983 the BSA survey, conducted by NatCen Social Research, has been asking members of the British public for their views on what it’s like to live in Britain and what they think about how Britain is run. The results give a snapshot of attitudes from a representative sample of more than 3,000 adults in Britain selected at random each year. The survey also provides valuable long-term trend data because some of the questions are asked every year. King's Fund
