Red flags

Red flags articles provide lists of presenting symptoms that may indicate a need for further investigation or referral. These articles also discuss possible causes, questions to ask and when to consider routine or urgent referral. They all carry CPD credits that contribute to GPs' and nurses' appraisal and revalidation requirements.
