Health consumer groups in the UK: a new social movement?
This article is distinctive because it provides a unique synthesis of data on health social movements and bridges the gap between the study of health and illness and social movement theory. It draws on the authors’ ESRC funded research which mapped the health consumer group sector in the UK and analysed its contribution to the policy process.
