Why are so many people obliged to enter hospital, when, if certain provisions were made for them, they could be better treated and cared for at home? This book examines this important question and discusses the kind of service which would be required, how it could be orga- nised, and the implications of such a scheme for health administra- tors and professionals, voluntary workers, and patients and their fa- milies. The author considers the success of schemes of this kindo- verseas, notably in france, where such a service has been admini- stered by the hospital services.

good to see this concept being introduced in Exeter...it has taken a long time for Freda Clarkes research to be put into practice.
