Planning, Markets and Hospitals by John Mohan

Book Description

Improving access to hospital services has been a goal of public policy in Britain for over seventy years, but the means by which this goal is to be attained have changed significantly over time. Drawing substantially on original research, lanning, Markets and Hospitals represents a systematic attempt to access the strengths and weaknesses of different forms of planning and coordination of hospital development. The period covered includes: services prior to 1948; wartime hospital policy; the successes and failures of the mixed economy of health care in the inter-war period; the national hospital plan of 1962 and ultimately the market based reforms of 1991 and the changes since. This book makes a fresh contribution to enduring debates about planning and regulation of health care, about the governance of welfare services and about the appropriate role for voluntary, commercial and charitable provision of services. It reinterprets previous histories of hospital policy and questions whether current policies will reconcile competing goals of equity and choice.

Logic of Charity by John Mohan Logic of Charity, Hardback (December 2015)

Charity is an important feature of life in the UK, yet there is no clear understanding of what charity is, how it operates, who it benefits, and what it can and cannot be expected to do. This book helps tackle misunderstandings of charitable activity in British society, particularly as these affect the thinking of politicians and policymakers.

Mutualism and Health Care by John Mohan Mutualism and Health Care, Paperback (August 2013)

Mutualism and health care presents the first comprehensive account of the establishment and operation of hospital contributory schemes and the organisation of voluntary hospitals in Britain before the creation of the NHS.

United Kingdom? by John Mohan United Kingdom?, Paperback (October 1999)

The human geography of the UK is reshaped by a number of forces. This book aims to chart the processes underpinning uneven development. It draws upon and synthesises the contemporary research findings and discusses the interrelated nature of economic, social and political geographies and questions where processes of change are tending towards.
