(Re)centralizing tendencies within Health Care Services: Implementation of a new idea?
Decentralization has been for many years a widespread
trend in health care sectors throughout Europe. Yet, more recently, a new
host of reforms is observable implying an ambition of some states to regain
lost control. What is the general trend of (re)centralisation about and
what happens when reforms promoting (re)centralisation are translated in
different national contexts; e.g. in what way contextual factors modify a
general trend? The establishment of regional health authorities in Norway
and regional hospital agencies in France will be used as examples to
analyze the spreading and transformation of (re)centralisation.
