About this book


Britain's health service has seen a period of unprecedented change over the last decade. It is small wonder therefore that today's nursing and healthcare students (as well as their teachers) find it difficult to understand the organisation in which they work. A team of authors from Portsmouth University have tackled this problem head on. In Perspectives in Health Care they have produced a straightforward introduction to social policy for nurses, nursing students and other health care professionals.
