•Covers the whole spectrum of general practice, to assist the GP with any problems which might crop up in the course of the working day
•Authoritative and cross-checked by specialist reviewers

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 throughout, 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 paediatric and elderly patients, a plate section of images, and reference to online guidelines and resources.
Revised to include the latest guidelines and management practices, this authoritative handbook is critical reading for all those working in general practice.
Readership: General Practitioners, GPs in training, medical students and allied health professionals working in the community.
Authors: Chantal Simon, Hazel Everitt and Francoise van Dorp
