In this extraordinary book Iona Heath draws on her experience as a general practitioner to select and comment on a collection of passages concerning death and dying and to consider the essential nature of general practice. In Ways of Dying Heath illuminates the process for professionals and lay readers and stimulates consideration of approaches to improved care at end of life. Her renowned work The Mystery of General Practice (which has been unavailable for some time) considers the complex character of this field its core values and changing roles. The two extended essays cover important issues on the role of the healthcare professional in the care of the dying the idea of life and death and the essential nature of general practice.
