This book is a most excellent addition to the knowledge base needed to deliver high-quality primary clinical care. It is 10 years since the author last pulled together a collection of the most authoritative clinical guidelines in an easily digestible format. Now a whole plethora of information is available online covering primary to tertiary care which to the busy primary care clinician can be overwhelming. This is therefore no longer a collection of all available guidelines - this is unashamedly a selection of the guidelines relevant to primary care that Dr Smith finds most useful in his daily practice as a very experienced general practitioner. He has included various resources that I have also found useful but difficult to locate, even online.
For the first time in a single core textbook, the Association for the Study of Medical Education presents a complete and authoritative guide to medical education.

This accessible and timely reference is designed to meet the needs of all those working in medical education from undergraduate education through postgraduate training to continuing professional development.
