John Goodman, President and CEO of the National Center for Policy Analysis, from his book "Lives at Risk: Single-Payer National Health Insurance Around the World" (2004), at 28 (footnotes omitted):
Britain’s ministers of health have long assured Britons that they were leaving no stone unturned in a relentless quest to root out and eliminate inequalities in health care. But more than thirty years into the program (in the 1980s), an official task force (the Black Report) found little evidence that access to health care was any more equal than when the NHS was started. Almost twenty years later, a second task force (the Acheson Report) found evidence that access had become less equal in the years between the two studies.
