The aim of this research report is to provide an overall evaluation of Labour’s record on health 1997-2010 as an input into the Social Policy in a Cold Climate research programme. The report summarises, brings together and assesses the available evidence on goals, policy aims and policies; trends in public and private expenditure; trends in healthcare provision and delivery; and outcomes including in relation the healthcare system itself, overall population health, heath inequalities and the UK’s international position. A follow on paper will evaluate the Coalition’s record on health after 2010 using a similar conceptual framework.
