The health service is considered as whole in this book, which deals with organizational issues relating to health service provision, including hospitals and personnel management. It includes analysis and discussion of issues of international relevance, particularly health planning, human resource management, information systems, and financial and supplies management. It is ideal for managers with limited health service experience as well as established health professionals. An active approach is encouraged and exercises for individual or group use are included, to provoke further discussion of the concepts and ideas covered.

it is built upon Charles Collins' excellent set of lecture notes and on his series of management exercises ... These are invariably focused, often with great humour, on the real-life problems of managing health care systems in developing countries ... The book is well structured ... the substance of this book makes it an essential addition to the library. * Patricia Robson, Queen Margaret College, Edinburgh, Social Sciences in Health 1996 2 (1) *
