This  accessible text covers the entirety of General Practice and the General  Practitioner, from student to retirement and from the beginning of the  NHS to the present day. It provides a comprehensive historical overview  representing both academic and front-line perspectives, describing what  has changed, beneficial or otherwise, as the specialty has evolved. The  details within each chapter represent the views of the average working  British GP and illustrate how the changes over the decades have impacted  patient care and its delivery. The perspective often differs from that  which prevails in many academic tomes on the subject.

The  topics covered, from the primary care team, changes to out-of-hours  provision, the impact of IT, training, and regulation, to the future of  General Practice, will be essential reading for all doctors considering a  career in the specialty and will also be of interest to GP vocational  training scheme course organisers and trainers, overseas medical  educators and healthcare policy makers, social and medical historians,  and the general public.
