West (health economics, United Medical Schools of Guys and St. Thomas and non-executive director of a National Health Service community health services trust) examines the genesis of the reforms in Britain's NHS and examines the position of each of the three stakeholders: purchasing health authorities, NHS trusts, and GP fundholders. The book also examines Working for Patients reforms and the types of behaviors likely to be stimulated by the introduction of market-style incentives. The final chapter reviews the current working and future prospects for the internal market and the potential changes to it that will be introduced by developments in health care purchasing and provision.
