Relevant for the entire primary care team, this book provides a diverse range of perspectives on current topical issues. Healthcare ethics is a subject of increasing interest, especially when it related to some of the challenging themes regularly discussed in the media.

Primary Care Ethics is rigorous and academic, while remaining highly accessible for the full range of practitioners. Moral and legal aspects are clearly distinguished throughout, and the theme-based approach is stimulating and original. In providing greater depth and breadth in this subject than has been available previously, the book is both practical and thought-provoking, and essential reading for everyone, whether in academic, training or practice-based primary care.
