Om boka

Time to Heal; Tales of a Country Doctor tells the story of the colourful life of a country doctor towards the end of his career. In turn shocking, sad and funny, they describe a doctor who feels poorly served by the conventional medicine of his time and finds new ways to relieve the suffering of his patients.

This tale has a twist. Twenty-first-century General Practice and its patients have been betrayed by top-heavy regulation, performance management and a blame culture. Young doctors no longer want to enter General Practice. The author explores why and how pandemics might provide the answers.

Today, in his late 60s, he continues as a part-time GP and is Chair of the College of Medicine, Visiting Professor at University College London and Health Advisor to HRH The Prince of Wales.
