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.
