Policy and Economics of Healthcare Delivery

Health care systems are under constant reform, much of which has an economic dimension. This module analyses recent reforms in UK health care and assesses the contribution economics can make to policy evolution in key areas of health care provision. This module goes beyond the material covered in the Introduction to Health Economics and should equip you to critically appraise health care reforms from both an economic and policy perspective.
