International transfers of National Health Service reforms : problems and issues.
Recent market-style reforms in the UK National Health Service (NHS) have attracted the attention of health care professionals, managers, and policy-makers from many developing and central and eastern European countries.
This article asks how NHS managers and health professionals should react to such international interest.
Six key issues have to be considered when introducing market-style reforms into developing and eastern European countries.
