Overview

Health systems throughout the world are undergoing tremendous change and this is particularly true in the United Kingdom, where the reforms over the last ten years have had a major impact on all aspects of how health care is planned, delivered and managed.

This work selects, interprets and puts into context the vast amount of information available on health-care systems both in the UK and elsewhere in the world. Key points include the illustration of trends over time, comparisons with other countries and systems and the coverage of all aspects of health care, both public and private.

The result is a single source of facts, figures and, most importantly, interpretation of the vast amount of scattered information available on the UK health care system. The book should be of interest to all those involved in the provision of health services: patients, doctors, nurses, managers and policy makers.
