Everyone visits the doctor – but few really know what goes on in the surgery (or the doctor’s mind).
SICK NOTES is the hilarious, shocking and occasionally tragic truth about the working life of a British GP – written for the lay reader.
Dr Tony Copperfield is an average GP in an average town. He spends his life fighting off the worried well armed with internet print outs and health pages torn from newspapers, dealing with youngsters with meningitis (three live, one doesn’t), worrying about swine flu, mopping up vomit, shouting at bureaucrats and banging his head against the brick walls of the NHS.
If you’ve ever wondered whether you have ‘Syndrome X’, if doctors believe all those guidelines about daily booze limits and why they don’t do night calls any more, Copperfield has the answers.
Dr Tony Copperfield is a Times medical columnist, former Medical Journalist of the Year and Pulse writer.
