Can competition enhance efficiency in health care ? Lessons from the reform of the U.K. national health service.
Since 1991 the reform of the U.K. - NHS has been introduced cumulatively.
Public funding of health care has been retained and the goal of the reformers is to improve the efficiency of resource allocation by creating competition on the supply side of the market.
The introduction of more autonomous Trust hospitals, general practice fund holders (GPFH) and the purchaser-provider divide is described.
