Philanthropy and the Hospitals of London


Oxford University Press

The 1980s witnessed a new-model Conservative Party taking its revenge on the public sector, which equated with bureaucratic waste and national decline. This chapter discusses charities and voluntarism taken more seriously by politicians in the 1980s. The trends of greater government power and expanding democratic rights accompanied by a proliferation of voluntary bodies and transformation in philanthropic attitudes are discussed. The growing dependence of the Welfare State on charity rose, an example of which is the Health Service in the 1980s. Voluntary support was rising sharply in the National Health Service.
