This new edition of Baggott's engaging and clearly written text provides students with an up-to-date and concise introduction to all aspects of health care in Britain today.

Including clear explanations of concepts like clinical governance and evidence-based health care, it also covers political changes such as the health policies of the Blair administration and the increasing diversity of the NHS as a result of devolution.
