Butler, J.R. (1979) L'Evolution des Despenses pour les Soins de Sante dans le Royaume-Uni Pendant la Periode 1970-1976. Centre for Health Services Studies, 54 pp.
The principal object of the study, set out in Dr. Dejardin's model report of 1st February 1979. is to quantify the factors influEmcing the annual growth in public expenditure between 1970 and 1976 on the following services: general medical care. specialist medical care (excluding in-patient hospital care), dental care, diagnostic radiclogy, pathology investigations, physiotherapy, surgery (excluding in-patient hospital surgery), and home nursing care. The method proposed by Dr. Dejardin for identifying the factors influencing changes in public expenditure on these services acknowledges the diversity of these influences, but seeks to take particular account of three factors: changes in the average cost of providing each item of service, changes in the number of beneficiaries, and changes in the a.wage number of items of service received by each beneficiary per year. Accordingly, in his model report, Dr. Dejardin set out these data fOI; Belgium between 1970 and 1975, and analysed them in a way that enabled conclusions to be drawn about the relative influence of each factor upon the year-to-year chan1t<ls in public expenditure in each category of service provision.
