A book ideal for supplementary reading
This book is published as an introductory reader? Students will need to be familiar with academic writing and the workplace environment to be able to utilise the information therein. There are sections of the book we will refer our students to and make reference in our teaching: chapter 6 on the carers viewpoint and section 3 - approaches, containing chapters 16-23.

There areseveral chapters in this book that are well worth a read and I will be recommending it to some of my students. The NHS is currently undergoing change and until we know the direction it is going in it is hard to recommend this text as essential reading but I will happily use the relevant chapters to inform students.
