This interactive timeline is a visual guide through the events that led to the Health and Social Care Act being implemented.
It sets current NHS reforms within a historical context - from the creation of the internal market in 1989, to the establishment of the first Foundation Trust in 2004, to the passing and implementation of the most recent controversial legislation.
The timeline was initially published alongside Never Again? The story of the Health and Social Care Act 2012 by Nicholas Timmins for The King’s Fund and the Institute for Government.
It has now been updated to include the main milestones taking us up to the main elements of the Act coming into force on 1 April.
