This editorial reflects on the relationship between risk and trust in health and health care. It examines how and why trust is a key component in the health care system of risk management, why there is a crisis of trust and the ways in which the trust relationship is being reconfigured in the UK's NHS and how this is likely to effect the management of knowledge and risk.
