Quest for quality: refining the NHS reforms is a detailed and authoritative study of health care in the UK by internationally acclaimed academics Professor Sheila Leatherman and Dr Kim Sutherland.
It is the fourth and final report in a series published by the Nuffield Trust to obtain a well-rounded picture of the state of quality of care in the NHS
since 1997. It combines comparative quantitative information, collected from a variety of UK and international sources, with an insightful policy analysis on the effect to date of the NHS reforms in England. It has two complementary sections – a policy analysis and a data chartbook – and contains recommendations for the Department of Health on how the quality agenda may be more effectively progressed in future.
This book will be of interest to policy-makers, health care leaders, researchers and anyone interested in studying the effect of the NHS reforms since 1997.
