Health care systems across the world are in a state of permanent revolution as they struggle to cope with multiple pressures arising from changing demography, new technologies, and limited resources. Focusing on the British NHS, this book offers a fresh look at how it has coped with such pressures over its 60 year history and considers what the future holds. The book explores the complexity of health policy and health services, offering a critical perspective on their development. The health debate offers a lively and accessible reassessment of successive reforms of the NHS and their cyclical nature. The book will appeal to all students of health care and health policy, and to policy-makers and health care professionals.
