Contraception book
'Bought for a course I am doing. Fantastic book, well written and easy to follow.' Amazon reviewer

Great for GP’s, PN’s, NP’s
‘I’m a nurse practitioner and this was my go to bible. It really has been a god send especially dealing with tricky contraception questions. I actually show this to my patients. I bought one for my colleague and she loves it-it’s made her feel more confident. A GP asked to borrow it a couple of weeks ago-she’s now bought it herself as found it really easy to navigate. Must buy for PN’s, NP’s and GP’s!' Amazon reviewer
