A feature of many developed healthcare systems is the attempt to replace provider-driven services by managerially-driven services which are ostensibly more responsive to consumer preferences.
Policy-makers anxious over the « crisis » of escalating costs in healthcare delivery and over the efficiency of some medical treatments and interventions are turning to managerial solutions as a means of holding professionals-primarily the medical profession-to account for their actions.
The paper uses developments in the British NHS as a case study to review and explore the issue of managing medicine.
