The Specialist Registrar and New Consultant Handbook by John Gatrell
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This book includes a foreword by Mary Armitage, Clinical Vice President, Royal College of Physicians. "Informative, relevant and helpful. I would certainly have liked to have had such a resource available when I was training! It provides an excellent balance between the eminently practical and pragmatic and the more detailed aspects of NHS structure, funding and commissioning. The subtitle of this new edition should surely be: Everything you ever wanted to know about the NHS, but never dared ask." - Mary Armitage, in the Foreword. Completely revised, updated and expanded, the third edition of this popular and practical text now includes information on the recent changes in structure, funding and governance in the NHS. Its comprehensive approach supports the personal and professional development of every doctor in and following training and covers all aspects of medical professionals' training needs from personal and management styles to practical questions such as writing medico-legal reports, requesting post mortems and giving evidence at inquests. It is an essential guide for newly appointed consultants, as well as specialist registrars throughout their training. Foundation Programme doctors will also find it highly valuable as they progress. Key reviews from previous editions are: "An excellent book which fills a big gap in essential reading for management and professional development of doctors." - "Journal of the Royal College of Pathologists". "This book has much to recommend it." - "Endocrinologist".
