Overview

In DOCTOR, DOCTOR, Dr Rosemary writes with warmth, humour and honesty as she recalls the stories of 20 of her most memorable patients from her 25 years working as a GP in south London. These include an eco-protestor with appendicitis, an octogenarian nymphomaniac, a teenager in labour with a baby she didn't know about, a lonely ex-coal miner with a chronic chest condition and a middle-aged man who can't quite bring himself to tell her the real problem. Funny, heart-warming and a little bit gory, DOCTOR, DOCTOR reveals the truth about day-to-day life as a GP. Heartbreaking diagnoses, challenging patients and the strong bonds that are formed, Dr Rosemary takes us from the waiting room to the consultation room and lifts the lid on what life as a GP is really like.
