Review:

'This book provides a unique view of the development of Primary Care Trusts in the UK. It is based on research carried out by the authors in the last five years, but also provides an international perspective on the development of health services. It will be a key text for students, professionals and managers with an interest in health policy.' Martin Roland, Director, National Primary Care Research and Development Centre, University of Manchester, UK 'A book for all working in or researching primary care organizations the world over. By reading it you can learn from the international research evidence and avoid others' mistakes.' Sally Wyke, University of Stirling, UK 'When following the key lessons from this book primary care will be more strongly managed and as a consequence better equipped to face current and expected health care problems...this book provides valuable lessons for professionals, managers, policy makers and students with an interest in health policy. If you are one of them, this book leaves you no choice: just read it!' International Journal of Integrated Care 'The style is methodical and comprehensive; particularly useful are the end of chapter elaborations of the implications and lessons for research, practice and policy. This device in itself commends the book to a wider than usual readership.' Public Administration
