In recent years the pace of reform in health policy and the NHS has been relentless. But how are policies formed and implemented? This fully updated edition of a bestselling textbook explores the processes and institutions that make health policy. It reflects policies under the later years of New Labour and the Coalition government, including the impact of devolution, and includes new case studies to illustrate how policy has evolved and developed.

"A very welcome update!" Tracey Heath, Faculty of Health and Social Care, University of Hull
"Enables students to think critically and innovatively about the highly political nature of health, and the practice of local and national decision making in health care." Dr Jan Quallington, Head of the Institute of Health and Society, University of Worcester
"Rob Baggott's book is the most up-to-date and comprehensive coverage of UK health policy - including the effects of devolution - on the market.
