Blair defiant over reforms.
He told the Cabinet that voters would back the plans, including proposals to let private firms run hospitals.
Blair's spokesman said the PM is certain people understand his Government inherited a legacy of decades of under-investment.
He added: "He believes people recognise change is already beginning to happen."
Blair's defence coincided with Iain Duncan Smith's bid to present the Tories as the party of public services.
The Opposition leader said he would introduce "the most far-reaching renewal of our policies for a generation".
