Health services are top of the public and political agenda in Ireland, yet much of the rhetoric is confused, and most people cannot understand why the system is the way it is. Irish Medical Media Award winner Sara Burke here brings her considerable analytic skills to bear on the Irish healthcare system, deconstructing it in layman's terms. Written for any Irish citizen who is concerned with the inequality that is at the core of Irish health policy, this book is also crucial reading for people who study or work in the health services, for policymakers and politicians.
Praise for Irish Apartheid: 'Forensic, rigorous, compelling...essential reading for anyone who cares about what's gone wrong with Irish health policy and how we can put it right.' Fintan O'Toole
