Given the fundamental and growing importance of health to the economy and society, this book addresses some of the key questions being asked in relation to health in the future. What will the health system look like, how much will it cost, what ethical framework will underlie future health policy and can we really have a system that is designed to improve health as well as provide health care? Based on the 'Policy Futures for UK Health' project, this collection explores the shape of the health system and its key components, taking a multidisciplinary approach to health policy questions that are designed to appeal to the specialist and those who want to know more about our health system and what it might look like in the future.
