Abstract

There is a growing interest in discursive perspectives on strategy and policy as practice. The goal of this paper is to present a discussion of the research methodology used to analyse the underexplored relationships between discourse, strategy and practice in health policy development The research explores the development of the Health and Social Care Act (2012) and in doing so highlights the weakness’ in communication – both in developing a narrative but also in being able to use it persuasively with important audiences – demonstrating a lack of engagement both with parliamentary colleagues, professionals and the electorate.
