The Tony Copperfield's Primary Care Scream by Tony Copperfield

Few people realise it, but underneath the caring demeanor of the nations GPs there lurks a darker side - a side which gets fed up with the frustrations of the NHS and loses its sense of vocation. GPs won't admit to these thoughts, though - and they don't have to, because Dr Tony Copperfield does it for them, even at the risk of his own career. His fearless writing, well known to readers of Doctor Magazine , gives vent to the anger and frustration which bubbles just beneath the surface of so many family doctors. Without his catharsis, regularly executed with dollops of common sense, style and humour, a nation of GPs would probably implode - a fact acknowledged by the huge number of emails and letters from readers thanking him for hitting nails on heads and slaying sacred cows. But simply, Dr Copperfield is to GPs what Prozac is to the rest of us. This book collects the very best of the popular Tony Copperfield articles, each around 500 words and published in the last couple of years in Doctor Magazine. They verbalise what many GPs are afraid to say out loud in a very witty and humorous style much loved amongst GPs. Acclaimed nationwide, Tony stands head and shoulders above any other columnist in the GP press!


Tony Copperfield is quite simply fantastic. He is unbelievably funny and, strangely, he is also extraordinarily and improbably wise. He cuts, searingly, through the sanctimonious dishonesty that so often pollutes healthcare politics... Most importantly, everything he writes is truer than fact.
