The UK health reforms: the fundholding experiment

By Howard Glennerster and M. Matsaganis


In April 1991 the UK embarked on the most radical reforms of its health care system in 50 years. Unusually it employed two quite distinct models of quasi market reform. One made District Health Authorities the purchasers of hospital and community health services. The other gave family doctors the money to buy these services on behalf of their patients. This latter model was the most radical part of the NHS reforms. This paper reports on a project that has monitored the family doctor fundholding scheme in detail
