Summary "Ethnicity, health, and primary care is a new book, intended as a broad but concise and practical introduction to ethnicity and health care for a wide range of health professionals including general practitioners, GP registrars, practice and community nurses, bilingual workers, medical students, and other health practitioners in training. Although focusing on primary care, the book's general principles and its clinical coverage will be highly relevant to other health and social care practitioners, in addition to those developing and commissioning health services."--BOOK JACKET
