A GP reflects on medical practice and, well, just about everything . . .
Judith Harvey. 224 pages
A compilation of 74 published articles originally written for doctors but providing fascinating insights for medical students and patients – and we are all sometimes patients.
Since 2006 GP Judith Harvey has contribted a regular column for every issue of the newsletter of the National Association of Sessional General Practitioners, writing on anything from wart-charming to robots. So, this book is a collection of ten years of meditations on health and medical matters in the widest sense, originally published in that newsletter or other journals. Her short articles explore ideas about doctors, patients, the senses, culture, medical practice, careers, ethics and politics, and the future.
