Doctors - who at their most profound are mercurial messengers between life and death, and who at a more comedic level must suffer our jiggling body parts - are also vulnerable men and women struggling to make sense of their existence. They are the only people other than our lovers to whom as adults we grant voluntary access to our naked bodies. The degree of such intimacy is emphasised by the concern of all medical ethics which promises that we will not be taken advantage of should we fall ill and become infantilised....

    Fascinating collection of interviews with doctors. Sad to read so many are disheartened with the NHS and are leaving and turning to private practice. I think we patients can relate to their frustration at not having enough time and resources, and the issue with continuity of care (how many out of your allotted ten minutes do you waste trying to give a new GP a potted history of your health?), but interesting to hear what it's like from the other side of the divide.

    This book is a set of deeply personal interviews of a variety of incredibly hardworking, eminent and passionate doctors. It is image-shattering, it could be disillusioning, it certainly paints a different image of the doctor to the paragon of virtues held up by western society!Fantastically deep in the disclosure of those interviewed and I would recommend this to anyone interested in the reality of the life of many doctors working today - both sides of the NHS/private divide. Themes such as continuity of care, death, stresses... it is so fascinating to read the views of those with decades of experience behind them.
