Abstract

This full updated edition of a best selling book explores the processes and institutions that make health policy, examining what constitutes health policy, where power lies, and what changes could be made to improve the quality of health policy making. Drawing on original research and a wide range of secondary sources, the book examines the role of various institutions in the formation and implementation of health policy. This edition has been fully updated to include an analysis of the later years of New Labour and the Coalition government.
