The Doctor Will See You Now, Paperback
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


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.

Review by

I read his first book but have not yet read the second. This book, his third, is very good. I found the fact of the nursing homes very thought provoking as I have had fairly recent contacts with nursing homes. It has patches of humour, pathos and everything else you will find in a hospital.
