The boundary that has traditionally separated public and private law is being eroded. At least in part this is because governments all over the western world have sought the assistance of private, commercial interests in the provision of public services. When commercial organizations collaborate to provide public services, how should their activities be supervised and regulated? This chapter examines collaboration and the regulation of public services; what is happening in the National Health Service; public and private law responses to the problem; and governance and accountability in the ‘mixed economy’ of public welfare.

Keywords:   National Health Service, public services, public health, mixed economy, public welfare, governance, accountability
