  • London occupies a unique position in the provision of acute health care in Britain, in terms of resources consumed, the quantity of care provided and the institutional framework within which service provision takes place. It is a commonly held belief that London has more than its fair share of health care resources when compared with the rest of the country. In this paper the authors examine the validity of this contention, in respect of acute hospital services, within a comparative national framework which the authors developed for this purpose. It was prepared to inform the work of the King's Fund Commission on the Future of Acute Services in London. It is being published in advance of the Commission's Strategy for London in order to inform debate about the future of health care in the capital, but should not be interpreted as anticipating the recommendations of the Commission's final report.
