Management controls on prescribing have greater impact on a GP's freedom of choice than on any other matter requiring clinical judgement. However, in order to deliver the most effective patient care, the GP needs a much broader base of knowledge including, for example, an understanding of basic pharmacological principles and the process of conducting clinical trials. This book deals systematically with the practical aspects of prescribing throughout primary care. It provides the busy GP with readily-accessible information so that the benefit to patients and the pratice can be maximized.

General Practice Nurses play an essential role in delivering care through general practice, taking on a spectrum of different responsibilities within patient care to support the ever-increasing workload within GP surgeries, clinics and health centres. Often working autonomously, as part of a multidisciplinary team, general practice nurses assess, advise and treat patients of all different ages and backgrounds, and therefore may encounter almost every aspect of patient care during their work. This book is specifically aimed at GP Nurses undertaking independent prescribing within the complexity of contemporary primary healthcare. It offers a complete overview for those taking on an independent nurse prescribing course as well as those nurses who have already qualified as independent prescribers. Case studies written for the general practice setting will help nurses build on the skills and practice they have already developed as they take on the independent prescribing role, and will also be of value to more experienced or advanced nurses hoping to refresh their existing knowledge. Written by a range of specialist authors, the book also covers the theoretical knowledge and context associated with independent prescribing, enabling GP nurses to practise competently and confidently and deliver clinically effective, person-centred care.

In the sixth edition of this work John Fry has reverted to the format of the earlier editions published in 1965, 1970 and 1973 and has presented statistical data drawn widely from many sources. General practice in the United Kingdom and elsewhere throughout the world has undergone many changes in the past decade. This new edition brings the available statistical informa tion up to date and indicates the way ahead. General practice, the College and the National Health Service have been closely linked in effecting change. The membership of the College con tinues to grow and its influence in changing the face of general practice in the United Kingdom is significant. John Fry's new book presents that characteristic blend of fact and personal opinion which was so successful in earlier editions and so valuable to general practice and others in primary health care. Once again he has shown what can be achieved by one man based on his own work and those of others in general practice. John Lawson RCGP, 1983 President of the Royal College of General Practitioners vi Preface The Present State and Future Needs series had its roots in the dark days of the early 1960s when morale in general practice was low and when numbers of new entrants were actually going down. They were the days of mass emigration of doctors from Britain and the National Health Service. The fourth and fifth editions were entitled Trends in General Practice (1977 and 1979).
