Summary

Benjamin Daniels is angry. He is frustrated, confused, baffled, and, quite frequently, very funny. He is also a GP. These are his confessions.

Benjamin Daniels is back. He may be older, wiser, and more experienced, but his patients are no less outrageous. Drawing on his time working as a medical student, a locum, and a general practitioner, Dr Daniels would like to introduce you to…

  • The old-age pensioner who can't keep his hands to himself
  • The teenager convinced that he lost his virginity and caught HIV sometime between leaving a bar and waking up in a kebab shop
  • A female patient Dr Daniels recognises from his younger, bachelor years
  • The woman whose mobile phone turns up in an unexpected place
  • A Jack Russell with a bizarre foot fetish
  • Crackhead Kenny

Not to mention the super nurses, anxious parents, hypochondriacs, jumpy medical students, and kaleidoscope of care workers that make up Dr Daniels' daily shift.

Further Confessions of a GP is the eagerly anticipated follow-up to the best-selling Confessions of a GP. With more eyebrow-raising stories from the world of general practice, Dr Daniels will once again amuse, shock, and surprise.You'll never feel the same about going to the doctor again.…

Realistic

Some stories are funny, some sad, but overall they reveal real thoughts and feeling of a GP. Being a GP myself I understand it well. It has also helped me to understand some of my own dilemmas better.

Enjoyable listen, however I want to see more depth

I have read the first one and did enjoy listening to the sequel. I understand the book is aimed at lay people and as a medic it is difficult to give a fair review. I was a bit disappointed that the author seems to have quite a judgemental view at times, not only towards patients but also when foreign staff/ patients were being described. It seems that the author was really keen to point out who was and wasn't foreign and how good someone's English was even when it didn't really add to the story. I found it unsettling to listen to the audiobook version's "foreign accents" of different characters, too. Just something the author may not have considered. Throughout the book I also sensed that the author had maybe stopped challenging themselves in life, including when it comes to complex issues, and often resorted to cliche statements and words of wisdom. I think that the author has a good sense of humour and could definitely become a really good writer however. I just feel that the book stopped a little short of its potential.

Hilarious and, at times, very moving

Very good book, excellently narrated. Gets a bit nauseatingly leftie in places though. Overall it is a great listen.

Entertaining & emotional rollercoaster.

The series takes us through this GPs journey from being a locum who delivers cases in an anecdotal style. This second part sees much the sameness but from the perspective of a practice partner. Plenty of variety and realism to make the anecdotes believable and take you along on the Dr's ride from new arrival to established member of the communities primary health team. Very enjoyable
