What Our Customers Say...

Description

Early Edition, Publishers' Original Binding, With Dustwrapper

Uncommon to have the dustwrapper to this work. The unclipped dustwrapper has a presentation inscription to the head of the front wrap 'Presented to John Bramley'. Bramley's inscription to the front pastedown. 

This work, sponsored by the Nuffield Provincial Hospitals Trust and Bristol University, culminates of five years practical and theoretical research into the design of various departments in general hospitals for the acutely sick. It investigates ways of organizing work in hospitals and provides examples of architectural and environmental changes that could help the performance of hospitals. 

This work is split into 'The Ward', 'Outpatient Service', 'Operating Theatre Suite', 'Physical Environment Within the Hospital', 'Fire Protection in Hospitals', 'Some General Considerations Affecting Design' and 'Planning to Meet Demand'.
