I think such books are useful for the ideas they give readers about how not to behave when you see your GP as well as how to get the best out of the consultation. They also serve to remind people that any dealings with the medical profession are a two way process and it is important to describe your own symptoms as clearly and succinctly as possible. Your doctor is also a human being and will have off days like anyone else.
As someone who worked his way up the medical ladder but ended on the hospital side rather than General Practice, I can vouch for the authenticity of the author's encounters as I and many others have had similar experiences to deal with. This is a well-written, thoughtful and humorous book that is a marvellous read and emphasises the doctor-patient human relationship with trust at the forefront. Excellent, highly entertaining and recommended.
A short book from Ben Daniels, Doctor, follow up to his first book of the same name, full of anecdotes taken from his time as a GP in a busy surgery and working in hospital wards.
We meet dozens of Dr Daniel's regulars and you feel the highs and lows of the job - I burst into tears when patients died and babies were born with brain damage. And laughed so loud I'm sure pedestrians outside my car heard me with the ridiculously hilarious story involving biscuits, a dog and foot callouses.
The good doctor does seem to tread a careful path, putting qualifiers on a lot of the stories (he even mentions previous reviews, so I did feel he was trying to tread a path between truth and not upsetting anyone).
That didn't stop the stories being moving, sad, uplifting - all of life was in there, all of society. And the life a doctor has to lead to be there for us in our time of need, we are reminded of their skill and what they have to put up with.
Costs associated with NHS care are discussed, and I was reminded of just what we might all have to pay if we didn't have it anymore.... A timely reminder indeed.
Entertaining and a down-to-earth reminder of the men and women who go over and above to keep up alive and healthy.
