This innovative and timely book draws on pioneering precedents, basic principles, current examples and international experience to capture the narratives, examples and ideas that underlie and demonstrate the exceptional potential of general practice:

"If health care is not at is best where it is needed most, health inequalities will widen."

"The unworried unwell are not hard to reach but they are easy to ignore and are often ignored"

"With patient contact, population coverage, continuity, coordination, flexibility, long term relationships and trust, general practices are the natural hubs of local health systems."

"... practitioners ... are not only scientists but also responsible citizens and if they did not raise their voice who else should?"

Written for family doctors looking to develop and strengthen local collaborations, it brings together for the first time the key components of a well-functioning health system including information, clinical governance, financing, manpower, drugs and technologies, service delivery. It also highlights the critical importance of working jointly with patients, maximising the use of serial encounter, integrated care and joint working between practices, social prescribing and community development, and advocacy, based on patient and practitioner experience.

Drawing on the highly-regarded work of Deep End GPs serving the poorest communities in Scotland www.gla.ac.uk/deepend the book is an invaluable handbook for all primary care doctors, irrespective of health care system or country, seeking to provide unconditional continuity of personalised care for all patients, whatever problem or combination of problems a patient may have.
