This chapter discusses what has changed and what has remained the same in the National Health Service (NHS). It enumerates the crucial developments that have occurred in the NHS since 1997 and highlights key features of the development of consumerist rhetoric. The chapter also considers how changing times and policy initiatives impact on palliative care and how user involvement developed here. It concludes with a consideration of whether the new NHS constitutes an opportunity or a threat for the capacity of palliative care to maximize its achievements and overcome its challenges.

Keywords:   National Health Service, crucial developments, consumerist rhetoric, policy initiatives, user involvement
