Baker, Gail, Bevan, John M. (1975) Management and Administration of Health Centres. Centre for Health Services Studies, 96 pp. (KAR id:5755)


A study was made of the variety of administrative arrangements, the content of administrative work and the decision making processes in health centres and group practices, prior to the reorganisation of the National Health Service in April 1974

The main method of gathering this information was by interviewing administrators in centres and local authority health departments. Reports of visits to health centres undertaken by officers of the Department of Health and Social Security were also analysed for the possible relation

between 'successful functioning' of centres and their administrative and other characteristics.
