This report considers how policymakers – the government and the main arm’s length bodies (ALBs) – can most effectively support the people and organisations actively engaged in delivering health care services to achieve high quality care for all within available resources. This report is the culmination of an eight-month programme of work by Professor Sheila Leatherman, working with a team at the Health Foundation, to try to find some answers.
