( As there are some units in this book on the physical aspects of health and social well-being) . (I personally used it for both, I have also used this book for the HND course that I am presently on). It can also be picked up and read by anyone who wants to read about different aspects of Health and Social Care, ranging from discrimination to writing a report.
