Recent UK government policies have had a number of effects on public sector organisations. Among the more obvious is the pressure — created from both direct and indirect policy changes — towards privatisation. Thus, for example, local authorities have been required to shift away from being service providers towards enabling others to provide. In the health service, many of the support services have been privatised and an “internal market” has been introduced, in which the purchasing authority is now formally separated from a variety of competing service providers.
