This work provides an accessible case study approach to European health care systems, medicine and nursing. It explains how "new" managerialism has impacted on the professions of hospital medicine and nursing across eight countries and questions assumptions of convergence but does identify a trend undermining medical dominance as well as traditional cultural forces inhibiting nurse professionalisation. The institutional analysis explains how welfare states have reformed hospitals and health professions with varying degrees of success.
