|Published Reviews||"There are few genuine inovators in mental health nursing but Dave Roberts is one of them. He has probably done more to develop the role of the mental health liason nurse than anyone else in the UK.
This book, edited jointly with Stephen Regel, is a long awaited addition to the limited literature on the subject. It is also the first of its kind to be written by UK nurses ." Chris Hart, Nursing Times April 30th Vol. 98 No. 18
