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. 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.

Features:
* Written by GPs, for GPs.
* Includes practical, hands-on advice to enable GPs to pick up tips usually only learned from experience
* 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
