ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's opinions on the plans of Great Britain's National Health Service (NHS) and health secretary Alan Johnson to sponsor a major review of the NHS while at the same time pledging to stop giving top-down instructions and ceasing centrally dictated restructuring. Arguments are presented which suggest that the only thing major reviews produce are more instructions and new rounds of restructuring. Suggestions for changes, including the securing of a baseline and subsequent data on changes to patient outcomes, which could be implemented to create effective health service, are offered.
