The Oxford Handbook of General Practice has been a lifeline for busy GPs since the first edition published in 2002. Covering the whole of general practice, with hands-on advice from experienced practitioners, this essential handbook provides rapid access to information to help with any day-to-day problems which might arise in general practice.

The new third edition takes into account the significant changes in primary care since publication of the second edition in 2005. Written in line with the new GP curriculum, the authors have provided new material on the GP contract, foundation level doctors in general practice, and training for general practice.

All chapters have been completely revised and updated with input from a team of specialist reviewers and contributors. The chapter on child health has been radically updated and specific chapters have now been dedicated to pregnancy and contraception/sexual health. The handbook also includes quick reference practical management boxes for pediatric and elderly patients, a plate section of color images, and reference to online guidelines and resources.

About the Author:

Chantal Simon is a General Practitioner and MRC Health Service Research Fellow, UK.

Review:

`Review from previous edition An outstanding and useful text, de rigeur for young registrars.'
British Journal of General Practice

`At less than one quarter of the price of a QOF point (L29.95), this book is excellent value for money and...it should be on the shelves of every Director of Public Health, or public health professional working within primary care organisations.'
Public Health

`The best book by a country mile. I'd definitely recommend it!'
medicworld.co.uk

`This is a book that demands to be used. It is well built for the job... The book is hugely and surprisingly comprehensive, covering vast tracts of areas of knowledge that GPs need to possess. Clinical and non clinical areas are amply covered in really good detail. The style is factual yet
helpful and accessible and a simple scan of the relevant section is likely to help a GP manage a situation... For GP trainers like myself, his is an excellent source of tutorial material. The clinical sections are just good... it is a frontline recipe book for all GPs-busy or not so busy. Without
doubt, in my mind this is the best available book for British general practice and it ideal for GP registrars, newly starting GPs, mid career GPs and GPs wanting to freshen up their knowledge... there is little excuse not to buy it.'
Dr Harry Brown

`What a treat - 1,100 pages of condensed knowledge and wisdom on everything from the new contract to what to do for obstetric shock... this is an essential - and I mean essential - piece of kit.'
The Sessional GP

`A comprehensive guide to nearly everything. It is the yellow book equivalent for general practice. If you only buy one book, make sure it is this one.'
British Medical Journal

`Small yet perfectly formed! This book is small enough to fit into any bag, or a capacious pocket, yet covers almost anything (clinical, practical, administrative) that any doctor or undergraduate working in general practice needs to know...I am extremely pleased to have been able to use and
review this book. I have no hesitation in recommending it to its target audience.'
BMA Medical Book Award Panel 2006
