Healthcare: how competition can improve management quality and save lives

Nicholas Bloom () and John van Reenen ()

CentrePiece - The Magazine for Economic Performance from Centre for Economic Performance, LSE

Abstract: NHS hospitals in England are rarely closed in constituencies where the governing party has a slender majority. This means that for near random reasons, those parts of the country have more competition in healthcare - which has allowed Nicholas Bloom and John Van Reenen to assess its impact on management quality and clinical performance.
