Time to Heal Tales of a Country Doctor

Biography / Autobiography Gift Books

Time to Heal Tales of a Country Doctor Synopsis

Time to Heal; Tales of a Country Doctor tells the story of the colourful life of a country doctor towards the end of his career. In turn shocking, sad and funny, they describe a doctor who feels poorly served by the conventional medicine of his time and finds new ways to relieve the suffering of his patients. This tale has a twist. Twenty-first-century General Practice and its patients have been betrayed by top-heavy regulation, performance management and a blame culture. Young doctors no longer want to enter General Practice. The author explores why and how pandemics might provide the answers.
