 — the strange case of health policymaking in Britain

KeywordsHealth services ; Policy.
AnnotationThis article traces the origins of policy analysis to the activities of the Benthamite social reformers in early nineteenth century Britain, describes the application of their techniques to policymaking, and discusses the subsequent decline of this approach in the twentieth century. It is argued that the reason for the decline must be sought in the political and bureaucratic environment in Britain, in the special circumstances of a state-monopoly health service, and in the institutional setting in which research is carried out.
