Medicine, markets and morals (MMM) is a multi-disciplinary research network on health and social care prioritisation and funding, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), led by Dr Lucy Frith (Liverpool) and Professor Cam Donaldson (Glasgow Caledonian University).
The debate over health care funding in England is changing and the founding principles of the NHS (a free at the point of delivery, universal health service for all provided out of taxation) are being questioned. Health care funding is an issue that crosses disciplinary boundaries and this network will bring together philosophy, ethics and health care economics to explore this area.
The network will begin in June 2015 and the meetings will be held on:
- 15th – 16th October 2015 – Birmingham
- 11th – 12th February – 2016 – Glasgow
- 26th May – 2016 – London
