The Invisible Hospital and the Secret Garden

The Invisible Hospital and the Secret Garden is a unique commentary on the first years of NHS reform, from the health insider with a patient's perspective. John Spiers has been Chairman of one of the largest NHS hospital trusts, an adviser to the Prime Minister, and is now a health policy specialist with the leading 'think tank', the Social Market Foundation. He is also known to the wider public through broadcasting and journalism. He addresses the key issues of social consent, patient power and the challenges of determining what is clinically effective. He offers discomforting, original and constructive perspectives for managing change. He argues for both policy and practice to be science-based, open, cost-effective and based on standards set in close consultation with patients. Power must be passed to the consumer wherever possible. The Invisible Hospital and the Secret Garden proposes further ways in which this can be achieved, especially by giving patients influence over how money is spent. His original concepts of 'the invisible hospital' - which patients experience but managers often do not see - and the 'secret garden' - the mystique of medicine which limits necessary change - develop the debate on fundamental cultural issues.

Although Frances Hodgson Burnett published numerous works for an adult readership, she is mainly remembered today for three novels written for children: Little Lord Fauntleroy (1886), A Little Princess (1905) and The Secret Garden (1911). This volume is dedicated to The Secret Garden. The articles address a wide range of issues, including the representation of the garden in Burnett’s novel in the context of cultural history; the relationship between the concept of nature and female identity; the idea of therapeutic places; the notion of redemptive children in The Secret Garden and Little Lord Fauntleroy; the concept of male identity; constructions of ‘Otherness’ and the redefinition of Englishness; film and anime versions of Burnett’s classic; Noel Streatfeild’s The Painted Garden as a rewriting of The Secret Garden; attitudes towards food in children’s classics and Burnett’s novel in the context of Edwardian girlhood fiction and the tradition of the female novel of development.
