GKT Gazette The real beauty of the book is that it is designed for the clinician that is not a psychiatrist. Hence for learning how to deal with patients in third, fourth and final year exams (not to mention in practice) it is invaluable. This isn't a book aimed strictly at students, but reading through it I rather wished I had it before my finals. This book is directed at primary care physicians and will be an invaluable resource to them. Mental health professionals will also benefit from using this book, in particular the patient information and resources. Primary Care Psychiatry This book can definitely be recommended as a useful resource for primary care and community mental health teams... a vade mecum of psychiatric disorders and practice. Primary Care Mental Health. Vol 2. No 3/4 It is... an extremely useful resource for busy primary care practitioners, packed with just the sort of information needed when managing patients with mental health problems. Every consultation room should have a copy! Primary Health Care The book has already been well tested among primary care practitioners. It covers the widest range of disorders from Parkinson's disease and epilepsy to dementia and acute psychiatric disorders... There is a useful resource directory and basic guides such as The Mental Health Act, Children act, audit tools and descriptions of psychological therapies... This book would be an important purchase for teams and all primary care, community practices and libraries should have a copy.
