The Health and Social Care Act 2012: the tale in a timeline

To keep track of the Health & Social Care Act 2012, it might be worth a moment reflecting on where we have been, with the use of this excellent Kings Fund Prezi.

This timeline is published for free alongside Never Again? The story of the Health and Social Care Act 2012 by Nicholas Timmins for The King’s Fund and the Institute for Government. It is a visual guide through the events that led to the Act reaching the statute book. It sets current NHS reforms within a historical context – from the creation of the internal market in 1989, to the establishment of the first Foundation Trust in 2004, to the passing of the most recent controversial legislation.
