Overview

This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States. Medical care in Britain is about to change and those now entering general practice and many specialist disciplines will work through the greatest transformation in service provision since the foundation of the NHS in 1948. One part of that change will be in the decentralisation of responsibilities for organising services, and the other part - which is the theme of this book - will be the blurring of boundaries between generalists and specialists, between primary and secondary care.
