Red flags and clinical reviews

Read articles from our two most popular formats - red flags and clinical reviews. Red flags articles provide symptom-based guides to help you determine when urgent referral or a specialist opinion may be required. Clinical reviews discuss key clinical conditions encountered in primary care, identifying prevalence, aetiology, diagnosis, management, prognosis and providing a case study to illustrate clinical care.
