A report of three breakfast seminars jointly organised by the Kings Fund, the General Medical Council and the Smith Institute. The intention of the seminar series was to look at how relationships between patients, professionals and politicians are evolving to reflect wider changes in society as a whole. The seminars also aimed to examine how relationships might evolve further to ensure we get the right balance of rights and responsibilities, risk and regulation, choice and efficiency. The seminars were “Modernising Health Care – Could we Take the Politics out of the NHS?”; “Modernising Regulation – Can we Still Trust Health Professionals?”; and “Modernising Health Care – The Patient”. A fourth breakfast seminar held at the Kings Fund on 29th January 2002 to mark the publication of this monograph, built on the presentations and debates that took place at the three earlier breakfast seminars, and mapped a way forward.
