Most women initially discuss health-related matters with a medical practitioner in a primary care setting, whether they have specific concerns or are seeking advice and guidance. This practical and comprehensive guide will help primary care practitioners to deliver holistic women's health care to patients throughout different life stages. Contraceptive choices, infertility, pregnancy, and menopause are covered, along with specific diseases such as ovarian cysts, breast conditions, and ovarian cancer. All of the authors are GPs, consultants and nurses with experience of the requirements for healthcare delivery in the primary care setting. Each chapter is written in a practical style, including a list of key points and using cases to illustrate the application of the content. This will be invaluable reading for GPs, doctors in training roles, and nurses with an interest in women's health. It will be particularly useful for candidates preparing for the DRCOG or MRCGP examinations.

Women's Health in Primary Care takes a ... practical 'how do you approach this consultation' perspective, with case scenarios and key point boxes, rather than the 'this is everything a thinking GP should know about this topic' position ... This is a book that needs to be in every surgery, for that quiet moment, if you ever get one, to dip into for 5-10 mins to refresh and update your ideas about women's health.' Sally Hope, Pulse (
