"General practice in the U.K. is responsible for more patientcare than ever before, and its input to medical training andresearch is at an all-time high. But its broadening roles andchanging political context are at risk of causing an identitycrisis. We are fortunate that Professor Trish Greenhalgh hasbrought her passion, intelligence and scholarship to bear on one ofthe key questions for health professionals today - what is the bestof primary care about, and why is it essential for patients anddoctors? She encourages debate while supporting and inspiringprimary care, because she tells a modern story of a disciplinewhose purpose is valuable and which can rise to its new challenges.I am personally very glad to have read this timely and excitingbook."
