Written by a team with frontline experience of the challenges and dilemmas faced in diagnosing and treating children in primary care, this practical text contains clear, evidence-based guidance about managing children in primary care and considers when referral to hospital is appropriate. The concise, list-based format enables a rapid, confident and knowledgeable diagnosis to be reached in the short time available in general practice. This reference book is invaluable for General Practitioners and GP trainees wanting to keep abreast of recent progress in paediatric care, but is also ideal for nurse practitioners, health visitors, medical students and paediatricians considering a career in general practice.
