Product Description: Health service policy and health policy have changed considerably over the past fifteen years and there is a pressing need for an up-to-date sociological analysis of health policy.

Despite health and health care having recently risen to the top of the political and policy agenda in Britain and elsewhere, little attention has been paid to health policy issues by sociologists researching health and illness. "The Sociology of the Health Service" responds directly to the need to develop a sociological analysis of current health policy. Topics covered vary from privatization and health service management to health education and the politics of professional power. Also included is an historical review of sociology's contributions to health policy and proposals for an agenda for sociological health policy research in the 1990s.
