This short end piece provides a personal view on the importance of health and what is needed to change it. It emphasises public and patient participation, and returns to the title and the word ‘potential’. It can variously be defined to include energy and the power to do work, and it uses the term entropy as the power to restore order. The world is a remarkable place. With the goodwill of people, wanting to improve the common weal, then health can, and will be improved.
