Summary

To what extent can we have truly universal, comprehensive and timely health services, equally available to all? Access to Health Care considers the meaning of 'access' in health care and examines the theoretical issues that underpin these questions.

Contributors draw on a range of disciplinary perspectives to investigate key aspects of access, including:
· geographical accessibility of services
· socio-economic equity of access
· patients' help-seeking behaviour
· organisational problems and access
· methods for evaluating access.

Access is considered in both a UK and international context. The book includes chapters on contrasting health policies in the United States and European Union.

Access to Health Care provides both health care researchers as well as health professionals, managers and policy analysts, with a clear and wide-ranging overview of topical and controversial questions in health policy and health services organization and delivery.
