Forty-one academics and practitioners from the UK contribute 36 chapters to a text for psychiatric trainees, psychiatrists and other mental health professionals, and managers examining psychiatric practice management within the UK. Opening chapters provide a theoretical overview of the history of the National Health Service (NHS), NHS politics, medical management and the National Service Framework, the different constituencies within the UK, and the legal aspects of psychiatry. Subsequent chapters address changes and conflicts in understanding systems, leadership, clinical governance, revalidation, confidentiality and clinical audit, and managing change and psychiatrists' performance. A final section turns to practical aspects of personal development and management. The text has been updated throughout to reflect change in the NHS--reorganization, reforms, and "modernization" of health delivery services as well as training--since publication of the second edition in 1995.
