Overview

General Practice has never been an easy occupation. In the past there were some clear structures and routes for new GPs to take. You could expect to join a practice and progress through the ranks, growing in seniority and confidence. You might have been informally mentored by one of the older colleagues; learning management and business skills gradually. It is no longer like this. The market has changed, the range of options is wider, and the way through the labyrinth is far from clear. You might find yourself confused and overwhelmed by all the new opportunities, possibilities and prospects. This book helps to clarify uncertainties and guide you towards the right path. It offers ways to formulate strategies when planning your career and maps out the landscape of general practice, enabling you to make, confident and informed decisions about your professional future. Supporting the initiative of First5T, The New GP's Handbook is highly recommended for newly qualified GPs who will find it answers so many of their questions and helps make the first five years (and beyond) in general practice more understandable, productive and enjoyable. Experienced GPs too, will find the guide invaluable as a current, general overview.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Vincent F Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences)
Description: This handbook for U.K. physicians who wish to become general practitioners is one of a number of books that outline how to become a GP and what to expect.
Purpose: The purpose is to give new medical graduates an orientation to the life of a U.K. GP. The authors note that this is a "daunting time" in medicine and then proceed to explain why it is daunting and how to navigate the difficulties.
Audience: The audience is somewhat limited, that of soon-to-graduate and recently graduated medical students in the U.K.
Features: "The book begins by describing the nature of the profession, the "landscape" of primary care and the work of general practice. It appears to be well thought out and honest. Subsequent chapters are very basic, addressing how to obtain a license, professional development, leadership, etc. There are many very good and helpful ideas in sections on "How to stay sane and healthy as a GP" and "medical uncertainty." These are incredibly important issues that new clinicians worldwide must struggle with. "
Assessment: As an introduction for new practitioners, this is a valuable book, with many pedantic qualities and with great philosophical value.
