Product Description

Review

John Lister s excellent book is essential reading for all students and practitioners of health and social care who want to understand the context within which they are now being condemned to work, and start changing it. --Julian Tudor Hart, author of The Political Economy of Health Care: A Clinical Perspective

John Lister has written a really important book [which] is as ambitious, as all-encompassing and as undoctrinaire as to qualify as a sort of Doyal s Political Economy of Health for the 21st century. --Professor John S Yudkin MD FRCP, Emeritus Professor of Medicine and former Director, International Health and Medical Education Centre, University College London

In this penetrating, highly readable and extremely well-researched book, John Lister takes on the narrative being peddled by the new global elite and their cheerleaders who are mounting a sustained attack on what remains of the welfare state, with health care as one of their prime targets. Lister shows that there is an alternative, but it is up to us to seize it. --Professor Martin McKee CBE, Professor of European Public Health, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Of all the deeply-felt emotions expressed by healthcare professionals and patients alike when confronted by the next apparently monumentally irrational change unilaterally imposed on their local health service (nearly always, it should be noted, associated with a lusciously-produced boilerplated report by PricewaterhouseCoopers or Deloitte), the most frequent are - bemusement and confusion. Weariness and depression are the invariable cumulative effects, especially in the aftermath of the destructive Health and Social Care Act 2012 (read NHS SOS (Davis and Tallis) and The Plot against the NHS (Player and Leys) for illuminating UK perspectives).

Inevitably this prompts the conclusion that `cock-up' and not conspiracy is largely responsible; a long-standing medical director expressed exactly that sentiment to me and my consultant colleagues. This book, more than anything I have read, is the corrective to that error because it takes the long historical view and lays the blame squarely and convincingly on neoliberalism, the miasmic, mostly post-war world view whose name is barely ever mentioned even by its most rabid acolytes (and they are everywhere, as Lister shows); but once its precepts are understood (so far as they can be; a comprehensive interpretation is still awaited, despite Naomi Klein and Philip Merowski's heroic attempts), the resulting clarity, while hardly a cause for optimism, may help to settle the mental disequilibrium, allow some kind of accommodation, and ultimately perhaps to set the 40-year pendulum swinging into reverse.

Format: Paperback
This well-researched book puts health policy reform in an international context, showing that what is happening in the UK is part of a global phenomenon. Full of illuminating case studies, it looks at the relationship between health and the market in an objective way,giving an update on the trends that are influencing developments in the NHS so strongly.
