Summary

The doctor is back again and on the wards! Now in his third year as junior doctor, Max looks and sounds the part. But this time around, things are not at all as he expected.... 

The junior doctor...back on the wards. After a year on the streets treating outreach patients, Max Pemberton is back in the relative comfort of hospital. This time running between elderly care and the dementia clinic to A&E and outpatients. No longer inexperienced (Max and his doctor friends can now tell when someone is actually dead), they are on the front line of patient care, for better or worse. 

In the midst of an NHS still under threat (some things never change) there are committed and caring doctors, big issues, hope, frustration, huge societal changes affecting the entire health system as well as the general drama of everyday life in a big hospital, from biscuit wars to resus. It's not like television, this is real - there are no easy answers - but The Doctor Will See You Now will give you hope that there are enough good doctors asking the questions.

This was a really enjoyable story. It meandered along happily from start to finish. Very funny.

Great story awful narration

Totally loved the stories but the nation was probably the worst I’ve heard.. it was like nobody had edited or listened to it before it was released. Every male patient voice sounded like a stupid, simpleton from a children’s book and the women’s voices were whining and ‘girlie’ . Phrasing in parts was dreadful and the tone of voice just didn’t match the individual situation of each little story. Please please re-record Dr Max’s stories (and all the patients) deserve much better!!!

Good book, not keen on the narrator

I enjoyed the book, it was easy to listen to and was quite entertaining in parts. However, I could not stand the narrator. He put on a really odd whiney voice whenever he was reading a female's speech which by the end was driving me insane.

Book is ok but the nsrration is not

The book is not bad but the author has made a mistake in narrating it himself. The content is not strong enough to carry poor narration.
