Evidence-based Organisation Design in Health Care: The Contribution of the Health Services Organisation Research Unit at Brunel University
One of the most sustained contributions to the gathering, testing and implementation of good practice in health service organisation was made by the Health Services Organisation Research Unit at Brunei University (HSORU) between 1968 and the late 1980s. This essay assesses the contribution of that Unit, particularly to the first major reorganisation of the NHS in 1974. It also considers the relevance of the concepts derived from that research to the continuing debate about health services organisation.
