This book provides an introduction to health policy in the United Kingdom covering both the substance of health policy and the process of health policy-making and implementation. Its aim is to offer an introduction to the organisation of the National Health Service (NHS), its history and development and to the way in which policies for NHS services are made and implemented in central government and in NHS bodies. The book also examines the auditing and evaluation of health policy, and considers which groups have power over policy-making. The main concern of what follows, then, is the politics of health care: who decides, who benefits and who controls health services.
