Understanding Health Policy explores the processes and institutions that create health policies in the United Kingdom. Rob Baggott asks what health policies should do, examining where decision-making power lies and what changes could be made to improve the process overall. He considers the impact of decentralization in the United Kingdom and the role of European and international institutions in policy creation and adoption. Fully updated, this second edition features new case studies to illustrate how policy has evolved and developed in recent years under New Labour and coalition governments. Although designed with the needs of students and tutors in mind, this accessible textbook will also appeal to policy makers and health practitioners.
