A concise, easy-to-refer-to handbook of common conditions seen in general practice and how to treat them. Each condition is discussed in a standard way that will be familiar to most GPs – assessment, including history and examination, and management. Throughout the book there are ‘alert’ boxes (marked with an exclamation point!) as well as helpful hints and ‘useful tips’, set off in boxes.
