Wasn't sure if I would like this type of book but I'm so glad I tried it!
Not only is it funny but I found it to be really interesting and you don't have to be medically trained to understand it.
One things for sure it makes you nostalgic for the "Good old days" of the NHS, when patient care meant spending time getting to know your patient's as human beings and not a hospital number or target on a league table.
This is an extremely interesting author, would love to hear more as I'm sure he has more interesting tales to entertain us with.

I enjoyed reading this book as it gave a useful insight into the establishment and early days of the NHS and how it was run years ago. It would be a useful source of inside information for anyone who may be interested in this service and could be an eye-opener for younger doctors and nurses etc. to see how things were done so many years ago. The book is well written except for a minor slip when the author writes about a priest coming to administer the last rights to someone. He should have written 'rites.' I would recommend this book as an interesting read.

Life as a Doctor in training during the best days of the NHS, for medical & Nursing Practioners. The time when there was competition of comrade between the leading LONDON Hospitals. When Nursing was hands on & medicine had a good bedside manner. There was a high standard of care, patient dignity, Professional Integrity & good self esteem with pride of practice.

Confessions of a Doctor is a delightful read. Professor Feldman offers up an intensely human history of medicine from the viewpoint of an active participant in that history. Best of all, he looks back through his career with the eyes of a competent scientist with a down to Earth perspective, wonderful sense of humour and attractive writing style. You will enjoy the way he shares with you things he enjoyed so much.

Writing is interesting, informative and humorous. Actually laughed out loud more than once. Not usual for me when reading!
As I had worked at Westminster Hospital from 1959-1963, Feldman's book brought back so many memories.
But I also learned a lot. Recommended this to several friends, of all ages as it's a great read.

Anaesthesia development from an earlier interesting period. Fascinating and revealing. Chelsea and Westminster medical students will find it particularly humorous.

It's not as amusing as I expected it to be.It could have been so much more amusing using anecdotes from his patients.
