This book combines a wide-ranging theoretical view of accessibility and utilization with empirical experience from a variety of comparable health-care delivery systems - those of the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. The authors focus on primary health-care provision, but also consider secondary and tertiary facilities. Where previous medical geography texts have dealt with disease ecology, this book provides a comprehensive review of recent geographical research into the health service system and its utilization. The book is clearly structured and well written, enabling students to grasp the essentials of the subject. The skilful use of references will permit more advanced students to follow up the topics in greater detail.
