This comprehensive resource provides more than 260 pages of quick-reference material, organised into A-Z sections covering all aspects of a typical patient consultation.

The MIMS Consultation Guide was written by Buckinghamshire GP Dr Raj Thakkar and reviewed by Worcestershire GP Dr Katrina Ford, ensuring a practical, patient-centred app­roach to the challenges of daily practice.

Well-defined chapters

The guide is divided into three well-defined sections: signs and symptoms, investigations and diseases.

The signs and symptoms chapter can be used as a rapid reference guide to all of the possible differential diagnoses, which are also covered in depth in the diseases chapter.

The investigations chapter provides accessible information on all of the tests you might need to request and guidance on interpreting their results.

The diseases chapter is an invaluable resource outlining clinical features, investigations and management of diseases, genetic conditions and syndromes seen in daily practice. 

Clinical tools

There is a useful list of abbre­viations and acronyms at the beginning of the book and the appendices include clinical tools, such as useful algorithms and scores, ECGs, a section on emergencies, for example life-support algorithms, and a palli­ative care section.

Easy to follow

The style is precise and easy to follow, increasing the usability of the guide. The book is ideal for GPs, GPs in training, foundation doctors, nurses, pharmacists and medical students. This is a must-have textbook when preparing for the MRCGP and MRCP examinations.
