It is too often thought that the impending structural changes to integrate the three branches of the NHS will, of themselves, solve the critical problems of the provision of arrangements for health services in Britain. On the contrary, it is evident that the changes of themselves are unlikely to touch many of the current major issues other than marginally.
The essays included in this book indicate the nature and extent of some of the important problems of health services including speculation as to the effects of those changes at present envisaged in the UK.
