Although from a nursing perspective this book is interesting and provides a fundamental insight into Health Policy. However in relation to my HNC Health & Social Care Students, I would not classify it as an essential part of the course material. Although if students do read this book it is certainly help them to gain a better understanding of how the NHS is managed, how it has changed and how we can make better use of the financial resources
Very precise guide to the policies surrounding healthcare. Excellent overview of the history of the NHS.
This book will help to make a rather boring and uninteresting subject matter Re: NHS structure actually interesting. This book is an ideal supplement to the academic modules in the degree programme for General Adult Nursing and indeed other health care professionals will find this book very helpful.
Some concepts are rather difficult to understand yet this book explains these concepts using language which is easily understood. My only slight criticism of this book is that some references referred to are rather dated.
Essential reading for Access to Nursing, this book is easy reading giving a very good insite int social Policy and issues during the Blair Government
Useful for essay on the NHS
A well written addition to the course reading list.
Useful book as a historical development text for health and social care policy students
A very interesting book that provides background to the political aspects of health care
This has been useful for the Masters in health and social care, as it introduces concepts that help students analyse this complex area
