Noise in the library

The COMET Building is undergoing an full refurbishment for 4 weeks. However the library reading room is very noisy during the day, which is unavoidable.

If you find the noise unbearable, please ask the library staff to provide a pair of closed ear headphones, which are very effective at blocking out the noise.

We thank you for your understanding. Library Team


New in the Library – CSA Scenarios for the MRCGP 4th Edition

The first three editions have helped thousands of candidates through the CSA exam in the last nine years. The original approach has therefore been retained so the book continues to offer readers a concise ‘need-to-know’ guide to passing the CSA, with the emphasis on successfully completing a case in the allotted ten minutes using a structured consultation framework that works.

This latest edition has been comprehensively updated to include new information on the latest clinical evidence, national guidelines, and from the recent medical literature. All existing cases have been revised and new cases have been added to cover pre-diabetes and premature ejaculation. Psoriasis, sore throat, thyroid disease and the PSA test are covered in even more detail.
