The Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine presents clinical information in a clear way that makes it easy to revise, remember, and implement on the ward.

Every chapter has been written with supervision from experts in each field to ensure accuracy, and updated to reflect relevant guidelines from the NHS, NICE, the Resuscitation Council and other key proffesional bodies.

Review from previous edition: "...covers an amazing breadth of relevant topics..this new edition retains its brilliant usefullness...covers all spheres of general practice and is an ideal when a GP is stuck for an answer when the patient is in front of them or a consultant is imminent... like
a GP, this is a good all rounder, which will solve a significant majority of problems that is thrown at it. It can occupy a small bit of real estate on a desk or inside a bag...built to withstand a fair amount of use-which this book deserves. I would say it is ideal for practicing GPS, GP registrars
and practice burses and other primary health care professionals... this is for someone on the frontline who wants a friend to help them. This book is their friend."
