• Each speciality chapter offers 10 pearls of wisdom with detailed explanation from a leading consultant in that field, with input from experienced GP Editor Keith Hopcroft.

• A bulleted list of ‘Prescribing points’ in each chapter highlights relevant issues around prescribing.

• Another section, ‘Easily confused’, highlights diagnoses which are often confused with each other, presented in an easy-to-read table.

• Each chapter features a section on 'Obscure or overlooked diagnoses’ which the GP might not have heard about or might overlook.


This essential guide for GPs distils years of knowledge, experience, and key evidence into 25 easy-to-read chapters, each one covering a different speciality.

Every consultant has pearls of wisdom they wish they could share with GPs: knowledge they have acquired from years of experience and evidence-based study, which could lead to better patient care and more efficient use of resources. Instant Wisdom for GPs gathers these pearls together, presenting ten bullet-point gems from each speciality, together with advice on overlooked or obscure diagnoses, guidance on how to distinguish tricky differentials, and tips on prescribing.
