Title: What's New in British Health Care Reform?
Publication Date: 03/02/07
The National Health Service (NHS) in England is undergoing its most far-reaching change since its creation in 1948. While it will remain funded largely by the government and free at the point of use to all those in need of care and treatment, the way health services are provided is changing radically. The Blair government is introducing market-style changes which aim to increase pluralism in the provision of services, efficiency in the allocation of resources, and responsiveness to patient preferences. It is encouraging new providers from the private sector to enter the market and compete with existing providers or replace them.
