‘A relevant and compelling book, accessible to professionals and laypeople alike…an invaluable and excellent guide to using the NHS.’ - Leyla Sanai, The Lancet

‘This book is one of the most stunning I have come across in many years. The author has captured very well indeed the complexities, nuances and sometimes arcane nature of interactions in our National Health Service. The style is such that all of us can learn from the scenarios and events she describes.’ - Peter Hill, Postgraduate Dean and Director, the Northern Deanery

‘This book illustrates the patients' journey as it really is - but it also offers positive messages about mediating difference; about enabling and encouraging families and young people facing difficult decisions and about the reality (and successes) of joint working. It should be read by practitioners, professionals and managers - and by families and their support groups.’ - Philippa Russell, Disability Rights Commissioner, Disability Policy Adviser, National Children’s Bureau

'Hilary Cass has written a remarkable book to show, not tell, how and why patient-centred care is so important - and so hard to achieve...[This book] should be required reading for Foundation Programme trainees, and would make a splendid gift for young people considering a career in medicine.' - Elisabeth Paice, London Deanery

'An all round interesting read...it gives insight into how small changes to our own communication skills can make major improvements to the management of patients under our care.' - Archives of Disease in Childhood
