Alumni authors - Jeremy Swayne

St George’s alumni are more than just great healthcare professionals, many have gone on to be successful contributors to the publishing world too.

Remodelling MedicineBy Jeremy Swayne (MBBS 1996)About the book:Modern medicine is dominated by a scientific method that focuses on the biological mechanisms of disease, and on developing medical technology to control them. It has achieved great things, but at a cost that is becoming unaffordable. In Remodelling Medicine, Dr Jeremy Swayne draws on his 40 years of experience as a physician to provide a persuasive argument that change is necessary, that there has been a longstanding belief amongst many engaged in or concerned with medicine that this is so, and that the momentum for change is growing; and offers pointers to the direction that change should take.Buy the book on Amazon
