Review quote

Really clear, concise- able to quickly flick through and access the information required...Additional strengths is having all the relevant information from a multitude of clinical presentations in one place. Particularly valuable to have the list of abbreviations- the book certainly delivers what it is intended for. * Gemma Wilson, Berkshire Healthcare Foundation Trust - Nursing Times *
