Public services touch the lives of everyone in society – and businesses have a major role to play as users, funders and suppliers in improving these services to meet the needs of UK citizens
Transforming public services - from education and healthcare, to policing and welfare - is central to restoring public finances and encouraging growth in the economy. It requires bold thinking about the way we design and run public services, to ensure they provide both good outcomes and better value for money.
Business has a vital role to play in improving public services. Having a diverse range of providers increases quality, stimulates new ways of working and encourages greater efficiency – essential to encouraging growth and dealing with the deficit. The best providers from the public, private and voluntary sectors should compete on a level playing field – government needs to enhance its capacity to create and manage markets to make this happen.
