Weaving thorough the complexities of health and social care provision - particularly funding - is a path that many community nurses and social workers will be familiar with. This book, although brief, sets out the key issues in Mandelstam's succinct, clear and robust style. By his own admission, it cannot cover everything but it does make an admirable attempt to clarify key topics such as continuing care through to asylum and immigration. -- Journal of Community Nursing
