Reflections on the management of the National Health Service : an American looks at incentives to efficiency in health services management in the UK by Alain C Enthoven( Book )

4 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The nhs is caught in a 'gridlock' of forces that make change ex- ceedingly difficult to bring about. Public policy should seek to cre- ate an environment for the nhs that is hospitable to quality- impro- ving and efficiency-improving change. Opportunities for constructive change should be nurtured, not politicized or otherwise abused. The nhs runs on the ability and dedication of the many people who work in it. But its structure contains no serious incentives to guide the nhs in the direction of better quality care and service at reduced cost. In fact, the strucutre of the nhs contains perverse incentives. The nhs could benefit from making much greater use of demonstration pro- jects

The other invisible hand : delivering public services through choice and competition by Julian Le Grand( )

3 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How can we ensure high-quality public services such as health care and education? Governments spend huge amounts of public money on public services such as health, education, and social care, and yet the services that are actually delivered are often low quality, inefficiently run, unresponsive to their users, and inequitable in their distribution. In this book, Julian Le Grand argues that the best solution is to offer choice to users and to encourage competition among providers. Le Grand has just completed a period as policy advisor working within the British government at the highest levels, and from this he has gained evidence to support his earlier theoretical work and has experienced the political reality of putting public policy theory into practice. He examines four ways of delivering public services: trust; targets and performance management; "voice"; and choice and competition. He argues that, although all of these have their merits, in most situations policies that rely on extending choice and competition among providers have the most potential for delivering high-quality, efficient, responsive, and equitable services. But it is important that the relevant policies be appropriately designed, and this book provides a detailed discussion of the principal features that these policies should have in the context of health care and education. It concludes with a discussion of the politics of choice
