Abstract
This study may provide insights into the positive and negative perceptions of physicians and citizens in Turkey regarding the Transformation in Health Project.We aimed to evaluate the views of physicians and citizens regarding the changing healthcare system using different questionnaires.We interviewed 1190 actively working physicians and 1997 citizens using face-to-face questionnaires to determine how the changing healthcare system has affected the behaviours of physicians and citizens. When asked whether the behaviours of patients and relatives had improved, 495 physicians (41.6%) answered yes and 580 (48.7%) answered no. When citizens were asked whether the behaviours of physicians had improved, 1399 (70.1%) answered yes and 362 (18.1%) answered no. According to the results of this study, there have been some changes in our healthcare system associated with the Transformation in Health Project.

Key words: Healthcare system changes, behaviour, physician, citizen, Turkey
