The fourth edition of the Oxford Handbook of General Practice is available to purchase in a pack with the third edition of the Oxford Handbook of Psychiatry, offering complimentary content from both handbooks at a discounted price. Fully revised to reflect the new changes to the GP contract and the GP curriculum, the fourth edition of the best-selling Oxford Handbook of General Practice is a practical guide to all aspects of general practice; from vital clinical information to valuable practical guidance from experienced GPs. This is the essential guide for all those working in general practice. Comprehensively covering everything a doctor needs to work in, or manage, a GP practice, Oxford Handbook of General Practice ensures readers are always up-to-date with the latest guidelines, the most recent protocols, and cutting-edge clinical information. With concise, bullet-point information the chapters are now colour-coded to ensure the reader can find vital emergency or clinical information without delay. Fully illustrated, and packed with even more figures, diagrams, management boxes, and tables to improve ease-of-reference, the reader will always have the vital information they need at their fingertips. Fully revised and updated for the third edition, the Oxford Handbook of Psychiatry provides the most up-to-date information clinically relevant to the doctor on the ground. Using a presentation-based format it provides detailed advice on clinical decision making after diagnosis. This handbook is an indispensable companion for any professional working in psychiatric medicine. Covering all major psychiatric conditions and sub-specialties, Oxford Handbook of Psychiatry provides practical and comprehensive guidelines and in-depth coverage of psychiatric assessment, psychopathology, evidence-based practice, therapeutic issues, and transcultural psychiatry. It is indexed alphabetically by classification codes and acute presentations for quick access. Reviewed by experienced clinicians, and revised by Specialist Trainees, this handbook not only gives expert advice for psychiatry professionals, but is also directly relevant to trainees in psychiatry. For the third edition, new information includes guidance on Adult ADHD, information on new drugs of abuse (e,g, GBL, GHB, mephodrone), and clinical decision-making in the prison setting. With such broad coverage and depth of guidance, this is the must-have pocket guide for all professionals and trainees working in psychiatry.

MEDIA REVIEWS
...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.
Review from previous edition 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 (GBP29.95), 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 an excellent summary of general practice. It's easy-to-use, fits in a bag, and enables a student, new GP or older GP to find the necessary information to support diagnosis and treatment quite easily.
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, this is an excellent source of tutorial material. The clinical sections are just as 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 *
As a comfort blanket for the less experienced it remains unrivalled, but truly, it is a must-have book for all * British Journal of General Practice *
This is an absolute gem of a book. I would not be without it for my general practice training...It is portable, comprehensive and relevant and the logical format covers practice management as well as medical conditions. * BMA Medical Book Competition 2010 *
The book is thorough and comprehensive, yet easy to read and well written, illustrated by useful... figures and tables. It contains most of the medical information and knowledge you need for use in a general medical practice, both in day-to-day and emergency contexts. * Journal of the Norwegian Medical Association *
Review from previous edition ...this book is a solid contender in a sea of similar handbooks, and readers will find that its periodic British nomenclature does not compromise its applicability to American Psychiatry... ...the Oxford Handbook of Psychiatry offers a more impressive breadth of evidence-based material and will undoubtedly be a resource found in the pockets of many practitioners. * Portable Psychiatry: Praise and Aspirations for the Oxford Handbook, American Psychological Association, by Michelle Braun *
Enjoyable, concise, relevant, accesible information, clear, logical, essential reading for anyone in mental health, highly recommended! * Reader review, Philip Cowin *
For the clinicians it is a good read especially for junior doctors who are on call and need a practical book to refer to. This book is well-written and well-organised with a good readable style. * BMA Book Awards 2014. Highly Commended *
