Review quote

"'This book is a welcome addition to the literature on international primary care. It illuminates the importance of comparative models in different healthcare systems and deals systematically with the subject. Understanding the issues that face primary care teams around the world is an important concept in preparing for future challenges and this book clearly, concisely and very readably summarises the global story.' Yvonne Carter, in the Foreword"
