The Big Idea shortlisted for series design in the British Design and Production Awards Modern medicine is exceptionally powerful, and has achieved unprecedented successes. But it comes at a price; individuals suffer from medicine's failures, and the economic costs of medicine are now stratospheric. Have we got the balance wrong?
