Two titles from the bestselling Oxford Medical Handbooks series are now available in this great value pack. Fully revised to reflect the new changes to the GP contract and the GP curriculum, this 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, this handbook 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. With new full colour photographs added to the chapters on dermatology and ophthalmology. 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 second edition, with a new section on the older patient and expanded advice on physiotherapy and rehabilitation programmes, this second edition of the Oxford Handbook of Sport and Exercise Medicine is an indispensable companion for any professional working in sport and exercise medicine. Sport medicine is an evolving discipline. This handbook brings together the common problems and diagnoses with a focused summary of the latest strategies, management plans, and evidence-based protocols. Authored by leading figures in sport and exercise medicine, this handbook is specially designed to cover the curriculum for postgraduate sport and exercise medicine exams. It presents the core knowledge in a concentrated and concise format. Arranged by system, it focuses on the needs of the patient and offers an immediate guide to all aspects of diagnosis and treatment, exercise benefits, and epidemiology. Practical, accessible, and clinically based, this is the single global handbook for the undergraduate, postgraduate or experienced specialist.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Review from previous edition 'This is an excellent handbook and reference guide. Its comprehensive review of sports medicine with a focus on quickly accessible, usable information is rare in this field...its compact size and logical arrangement by body areas makes it excellent for quick on-field review [but it is] equally useful as an office reference. Just as Harrison's Manual of Medicine, 16th edition is in every medicine resident's white coat, this handbook should be in every sports medicine fellow's medical kit.' * Doody's Notes *
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 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 *
