Two: The NHS in 1990

This chapter aims to provide the context for the rest of the book, exploring the NHS in 1990 in terms of its organisational structure and dynamics at that time. The chapter proceeds by presenting the background to health organisation and policy in 1990 to provide a starting point for the account of subsequent reorganisations. It explores in more depth attempts at reorganisation during the 1980s in order to construct the ‘shared vision’ of health politics in the 1990s which provides the starting point, and context, for the book’s analysis.
