Perot Systems (NYSE: PER) continues its series of podcasts with a look on the ideological changes in the United Kingdom's National Health Service leadership over the past 10 years, and how those changes will affect the industry's future.

The following quotes from Sir Robert Naylor are highlights of the podcast:

On how patient mentality has changed:

"Patients have become much more demanding, and there's a whole series of excellent reasons for that. I think public expectations have increased. The public are able to exercise choice now in a way that wouldn't have been dreamt of ten years ago before the advent of the Internet," said Sir Naylor.

On the notion of earned autonomy:

"The real challenge for the Health Service is that the Health Service is essentially fully funded by public subscription through taxation, and the politicians find it extremely difficult to let go of the strings and empower organizations like mine. About six or seven years ago, the labor government in the UK realized if hospitals were to flourish in the future, then they had to be given more autonomy and came up with the notion of earned autonomy," said Sir Naylor.

Information about Sir Robert Naylor:

Sir Robert Naylor has been Chief Executive at UCLH since November 2000, having previously spent 15 years as Chief Executive at Birmingham Heartlands and Solihull NHS Trust. Sir Robert has led the development of the largest single building project in the NHS to create the new world class University College Hospital, which was handed over to the Trust in April 2005. Sir Robert has been a chairman of a number of national and regional committees and is a senior associate fellow at the University of Warwick, Institute of Governance and Public Management.
