Health and care in neoliberal times, Neil Small

Summary
"This book argues that neoliberal changes in health and social care go beyond resource allocations, priority setting, and privatisation, and manifest in an invidious erosion of the quality of our social relationships, including relationships between care provider and care recipient. Exploring the interaction of politics, economics and social change and their impact on healthcare and the wider welfare state, this is an important contribution for students and researchers in health and social care, sociology, political science and management studies"-- Provided by publisher
