Sick Notes
By Dr Tony Copperfield (Martyn Lobley (MBBS 1981))

About the book:
The hilarious, shocking and occasionally tragic truth about the working life of a British GP, written for the lay reader. Dr Tony Copperfield is an average GP in an average town. He spends his life fighting off the worried well armed with internet print outs and health pages torn from newspapers, dealing with youngsters with meningitis, worrying about swine flu, mopping up vomit, shouting at bureaucrats and banging his head against the brick walls of the NHS. Perfect for anyone who has ever wondered what really goes on in a GP practice.

''A wonderful book, funny and insightful in equal measure, and an ideal gift for all doctors and those brave enough to use them''. Dr Phil Hammond GP (Private Eye magazine, Channel 4's Countdown)
