The National Savings Catalogue (2017) is a spoof savings catalogue developed by the Body Recovery Unit. The project explores how the rise in ‘intelligent’ cost-optimisation tools in healthcare governance such as the “Where to Look Packs” produced by NHS RightCare, impacts on the view of pregnant women’s bodies and behaviours. The booklet is designed to connect people with their data and intended for the waiting room at the antenatal clinic, so expecting women can look up what part of their body is the most cost saving to the NHS.

The project was kindly supported by the AHRCand HvA.
