Medical professional opposition to the non-registered came to a strong point when influential doctors staffed the newly formed Ministry of Health after the First World War. The new Ministry was particularly dominated by its medical officers, who, as its official records indicate, were usually at one with their external professional colleagues on issues of occupational privilege. Medical herbalists, for example, with an ancient professional pedigree, were amongst the first to challenge the medical-Ministry alliance, to seek some benefit from inclusion in the new order.

However, some right-wing academics such as Hayek and Friedman developed a theoretically grounded critique of the welfare state and outlined an alternative strategy. They challenged many of the basic assumptions of the welfare state. They argued that state protection of certain citizens made these citizens dependent on the state and destroyed their ability to care for themselves. Hayek warned of the dangers of collective political power: What is called economic power, while it can be an instrument of coercion, is in the hands of private individuals never exclusive or complete power, never power over the whole person.

These reviews led to a series of restructuring in the 1970s that created large administrative units and agencies in central and local government. These welfare agencies were designed to facilitate the introduction of corporate managerial processes and to draw professionals into the process of management and resource allocation. These new agencies had been conceived in the 1960s when the accepted view was that there would be a continued expansion of the resources allocated to welfare. However, they became operational in the 1970s during a period of fiscal crisis; indeed they contributed to the crisis by adding to the rapid expansion of public service costs.
