Product Description

Review

As a comfort blanket for the less experienced it remains unrivalled, but truly, it is a must-have book for all (British Journal of General Practice)

This is an absolute gem of a book. I would not be without it for my general practice training...It is portable, comprehensive and relevant and the logical format covers practice management as well as medical conditions. (BMA Medical Book Competition 2010)

Format: Paperback
This book is extremely useful as a reference manual even if you are not in general practice. I certainly use it everyday for quick reference when I see patients in clinics.

The only issue is that the proof-reading was a little slack and there are small inconsistencies, spelling mistakes and, in one particular table, boxes that were left blank when they should have been filled.

As a GP trainee and now trainer, I have found the Oxford Handbook series invaluable. Comprehensive, accessible, and a handy size for carrying around; this is a must-have text for all GPs, no matter what stage they are at.

If you are working in general practice or district nursing or as a modern matron/case manager in long term conditions this is a superb text, easy to dip in and out of (though it would be nice if it had bigger print - for old 'uns like me anyway).
Useful web sites, lots of stuff to jog old memories, fits in bag or pocket all in all wouldn't be without it.

I have found this book to be an extremely useful guide for a rapid and comprehensive review of clinical presentations often encountered in general practice.I believe it is also a very useful aid to help one prepare for the MRCGP examination.Highly recommended.

This book is a bible. It is one of the best buy. It has everything you need, all in one. Before I would carry many books, and now I only need one. It is my bible for the medical world, and I take it everywhere, because the answer is there. Great book everyone in the medical world/and student world should have one.

Never before has there been written a more complete general practice text. This book covers all the syllabus of a general practioners in a way which is both easy to understand and memorise.
This really is a must for all prospective medical students with an eye on a GP post.

I underestimated this book when I first got it, because I felt it was not detailed enough, however I now feel differently. It is very adequate for General Practice and an invaluable resource for the applied knowledge test (AKT).It also very adequate for daily consultations, and the contents cover the everyday presentations to general practice which you sometimes cannot find in standard medical textbooks. Some of those presentations that have you going 'oops ' what am I dealing with here are all covered howbeit sometimes in a nut shell. It is comprehensive and an excellent book for General practice. The only down side is that, the frequency with which the NICE guidelines changes some of the management plans need looking up from time to time to ensure they are still valid.
