What Reviewers Are Saying
'Read this book if you want to know what works and doesn't work in healthcare!' - Wouter Bos, Chairman of VU University Medical Centre, Amsterdam 'This is an excellent book for understanding best practices of healthcare systems around the world. Practitioners and students should read it!.' Professor Ling Li - Senior Advisor to Chinese Health Minister and Chair of the China Centre for Health Development, Peking University 'This book is vital reading for every clinical leader. The challenges of leading today require looking beyond boundaries to see the bright spots from systems across the world.' - Maureen Bisognano, CEO of Institute Healthcare Improvement, USA 'Clearly demonstrates that developing and developed countries alike all have something to teach and learn' - Dr Prathap C Reddy, Founder and Chairman of the Apollo Hospitals Group in India 'Intelligible, quick reads are hard to come by in healthcare services. But that is what is delivered by Mark Britnell, Global Chairman and Senior Partner for Health at consultancy KPMG... The book is a great, level-headed summary of where we are today.' Healthcare Business International 'The book describes health care systems across the globe. It makes the point that no country has the perfect solution and it invites the reader to consider how countries as disparate as Indonesia and Switzerland have developed solutions to the bespoke challenges in their respective countries. It is beautifully written and as the fly note says, each chapter can be read in the time it takes to drink a cup of coffee.' Dr Peter Carter OBE
