Abstract

Primary care is the hub of the National Health Service in Britain. What matters most for health service users is that they have access to health professionals who they can trust. Yet for many decades, the health-care relationship has been unequal. Doctors have the power and NHS patients should be grateful for what they get. However the balance is changing. This volume takes up the challenge of effective public involvement and explains how it can add to the value of the NHS.
