This chapter examines the evolution of health care reform in Great Britain and the three phases it has passed through. It discusses the successive and almost continuous reform of the NHS in the mid-1970s which provide a good case study of health care reorganisation. It suggests that the reality of implementing change in the NHS is far less straightforward and certain given that the agency employs more than one million people.
