A hysterical and sometimes tragic portrayal of a doctor’s interactions with a captivating array of patients contrasted against the frustrations and humdrum of being a junior doctor in the National Health Service.

From being the savior of a man’s anus to being mistaken for the milkman, Tom describes the complexity and absurdity of today’s medical practice with humor and aplomb. Tom is a junior doctor working in the National Health Service. Tom Parsons is a pseudonym.

This second edition features new content.

1st class but worrying

Liked the book from end to end but the last bit brought it home with a bang, one overpowering, over promoted person trying to tick boxes kills but walks away. Doctors can and do live a good life when at the top of the tree, but it's not those we see day to day, it's folk like this that will save your life.

Author spoke so fast at times

Very interesting and entertaining audiobook but the author/narratorspeaks at the speed of lightning. I'm English also so it's not an issue of my not understanding accent or other English phrases.
