  • This report, by a Brunel team led by Professor Maurice Kogan, was commissioned by the King's Fund at the request of the Department of Health and financed by the Department. It describes the Management Advisory Service in the Oxford and South Western regions, and Performance Review in Wessex, in the period from 1982-1984. These activities, known collectively as the MAS Trials, were launched by Patrick Jenkin as Secretary of State, in connection with Patients First. Although the report suggests that the experiments have not been wholly successful, there remain useful lessons to be learned.
