You are required to locate a government White Paper of your choice, dependent on your area of interest. E.g. A White Paper on Health Policy, Education Policy, community care, housing policy etc.
- The act must be 8 years old
Once agreed you need to:
1 Identify the title, date and source of the White Paper.
E.g. Working For Patients. (1989) Dept.of Health.
2 Identify the key aims / proposals of the White Paper.
E.g. the key aims stated in the above example working for Patients Are:
1, to improve efficiency of service.
2, to improve the quality of service within the NHS.
3, to improve patient choice of NHS services.
3 Once you have identified and explained why those aims have been proposed, (why the particular government making the proposals suggested these aims were more appropriate in comparison to those of past opposing governments) you will next need to analyse the outcome of the white Papers aims in practice.
4 You will need to consider whether following implementation (that is the passing of the Act that follows the White Paper making the aims law) has improved or worsened the provision of service for both service providers and service users. Consider each aim separately as you may find some aims have been successful whilst others have not. Using authoritative sources (relevant books, journals and newspaper articles) compare the views of the different authors who have commented on the implementation and outcome of the Act.
