"Contemporary medicine has lost sight of the central role of human relationships within healthcare. In this profoundly important book, Margaret Hannah explores both the destructive effects of this loss and the ways in which strong interpersonal relationships can be recreated and once again become the foundation of appropriate and affordable healthcare."
Iona Heath, former President of the Royal College of General Practitioners (UK)
"This book has the potential to shake to the foundations our system of healthcare.
Individuals and communities hold in their own hands many of the answers to preventing disease and promoting health and well-being. This book brings hope and a very practical plan for a sustainable, effective, efficient, health system."
Mary Renfrew, Professor of Mother and Infant Health, University of Dundee
"It is a sad truth that healthcare systems across the world are often not accessed by those who need them most, don’t work as well as they could and are increasingly unaffordable. This book provides an excellent and extremely readable account exploring the underlying issues. Importantly, it also contains exciting ideas as to how we might do better in the future."
Patrick H Maxwell, Regius Professor of Physic & Head of the School of Clinical Medicine, University of Cambridge
