Reviews

"The unique presentation of the book remains, utlising the design of double page chapters. This makes the book very readable and also easy to dip in and out of when used for reference...The text is very up-to-date and includes insights into possible future developments...The target audience is medical students preparing for their MRCP and MRCGP exams and specialist nurses. There is much competition in this field, but this is one of the best available and I highly recommend it."
