A man with a sore knee. A young woman who has been trying to conceive for a while but now finds herself pregnant and isn't sure she wants to go through with it. A 7-year-old boy with 'tummy aches' that don't really exist.These are his patients.Confessions of a GP is a witty insight into the life of a family doctor.

Funny and moving in equal measure it will change the way you look at your GP next time you pop in with the sniffles.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jess Fletcher | 1/30/2014

    " A very witty book full of short tales of life as an NHS GP which are apparently true. Very interesting if you live in the UK, it answered a few of my questions about how GP's work and how the NHS do things. It's not all funny stories about people getting things stuck in awkward places, some of them are sad, some give you the shivers and there are a few that are just general rants about the politics of being a GP (blah blah blah) which you can skip past if you're bored. It's more a collection of experiences than a linear tale. Also quite a quick read. "

    " This book wasn't exactly what I expected. What I had thought would be a fiction-like story encapsulating Dr. Benjamin's experiences as a doctor in England, turned out to be more like a collection of very short essays, with no connection between them and no logical flow. That said, most of the individual stories were interesting, if only for a better insight into the life of a GP. I did learn more about the workings of the NHS, and was amused by some of the patient anecdotes. It wasn't a bad read, and while I personally am unlikely to re-read it, I would recommend it to young doctors or medical students, as it gives an idea about what the GP life is like. "

    " Daniels is witty, and entertaining but very honest as well. As a doctor I highly recommend the book as it is a true picture of work on the fore front of patient care. Well worth a read! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Natasha | 1/18/2014

    " Not worth reading, very little content, i was so bored reading it i couldn't wait to finish, nothing at all like it's description very dull indeed! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brendan | 1/13/2014

    " A lighthearted piece of reality humour. A nice easy read for on the train :-) Having an insiders view on the NHS was very enlightening and interesting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica Smith | 12/23/2013

    " This book started off very funny. I really enjoyed his opinions as recently studying health studies, biology and health science I understood things people may not! Really inspiring book in terms of me moving making my big move into the NHS and what to expect with those tricky patients! Just sometimes a little bit boring. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leo Leibovici | 12/20/2013

    " Enjoyable, funny and at times sad. Learned a lot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily Smirnova | 12/17/2013

    " not my usual choice of book but I fancied something light hearted. at times it was funny but I didn't enjoy it as much as I thought I would have. it was a shame but also makes you feel a little bit less of an inconvenience when you do go to the dr when you're ill! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Donna Hames | 11/17/2013

    " Funny! Kept reading out passages to my family. Not one to read on the train unless you want to attract attention! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mohsan Alvi | 11/5/2013

    " Takes the glamour out of medicine with a laugh. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica Jones | 9/7/2013

    " Funny, easy to read, liked it a lot. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nichola | 8/23/2013

    " Oh my word, what can I say about this book. Overall a funny funny book with moments which are touching and others which make you stop and think. This is not my usual type of book but for a quick, easy read I highly recommend it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sunil Chauhan | 8/19/2013

    " It was ok, some parts were funny (e.g. SLS Shit Life Syndrome) but other parts were a bit boring. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sharon | 1/24/2013

    " I really wanted this to be better and was left feeling quite disappointed by it "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donna | 12/1/2012

    " A good lighthearted read and gives an insight into the day to day life of a GP with a sense of humor! Although I'm glad I only paid 99p for it in iBooks! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Naomi | 10/30/2011

    " The review will be on my blog on Tuesday 2nd February. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 dardar13 | 7/30/2011

    " Its a quick enjoyable read and it dawned on me that I have never called a single doctor - well doctor. I've always addressed them by their first name. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deniz | 6/1/2011

    " This book was interesting and entertaining. However it was a bit repetitive at parts I'm afraid. I dragged on a little sometimes as well. But overall, it was enjoyable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 5/2/2011

    " Although some of the anecdotes were very funny, the way that the author wrote did come across as being rather pompous and preachy. The stories about the comical patients were short and the social commentary that followed many of them was, in my opinion, far too long, "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Naomi | 1/17/2011

    " The review will be on my blog on Tuesday 2nd February. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ben | 11/4/2010

    " A fun book for reading on the train as it's broken into 3-4 page anecdotes making it ideal for short journeys. An interesting look at the NHS and the ethical problems that some GPs face when confronted with the lowest members of society. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Hywel | 10/1/2010

    " Pretty interesting to read and very funny in places, but not structured enough for my liking. Reads a bit too much like a random diary - some post-editing may not be 'authentic', but can be done whilst keeping integrity whilst improving the read. "
