This book has been written by a surgeon, a pharmacist and a psychologist (our very own Prof Charles Vincent).  It’s a guide for those of us unlucky enough to spend time in hospital as either a patient or relative.  It will be of particular value to those friends and relatives who have little understanding of healthcare.  For those of us working in human factors but not healthcare it also provides a lovely overview of some of the technicalities of the system.
