Benjamin Daniels is angry. He is frustrated, confused, baffled and, quite frequently, very funny. He is also a GP. These are his confessions.

A woman troubled by pornographic dreams about Tom Jones. An 80-year-old man who can't remember why he's come to see the doctor. A woman with a common cold demanding (but not receiving) antibiotics. 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 by 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! "

    " 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! "
