This essential guide for GPs distils years of knowledge, experience, and key evidence into 25 easy-to-read chapters, each one covering a different speciality.

Every consultant has pearls of wisdom they wish they could share with GPs: knowledge they have acquired from years of experience and evidence-based study, which could lead to better patient care and more efficient use of resources. Instant Wisdom for GPs gathers these pearls together, presenting ten bullet-point gems from each speciality, together with advice on overlooked or obscure diagnoses, guidance on how to distinguish tricky differentials, and tips on prescribing.

Each of these 25 chapters is written by an expert with lengthy experience in his or her field:

Cardiology Ophthalmology Gynaecology ENT Renal General Practice Orthopaedic Haematology Psychiatry Neurology Diabetes Urology Functional Symptoms Respiratory General Surgery Oncology Thyroid Disease Paediatrics Sexual Health Rheumatology Care of the Elderly Dermatology Palliative Care Allergy Gastroenterology From the author of the critically acclaimed Symptom Sorter.
