|Abstract:||The chapter proceeds in the following way. Firstly, it briefly outlines the traditional Labour approach to the public services, labelled the ‘professional model’ and the objections lodged to it by New Labour. Secondly, it explores the main contours of the Blair Government’s alternative model, ‘New Labour Managerialism.’ The third and longest section considers the extent to which this new approach has succeeded in promoting its key objective of higher quality, more equitably delivered services in the two central policy sectors of secondary education and healthcare. This is followed by a brief conclusion.|
