Publisher's Summary

Stephanie Green isn't like most other doctors. Nearly every day, she confronts life-and-death situations behind the scenes at Heathrow, where the truth is almost always stranger than fiction.

From monitoring drug mules to treating refugees entering the UK and greeting and assessing any plane landing at Heathrow coming from affected epidemic areas, Dr. Green deals with any and all situations deemed to require a medical opinion at London's Heathrow Airport, often confronting dramatic situations on every shift. Through all of this, Dr. Green juggles 24-hour shifts and threats of a level four virus with the demands of running a home and looking after her two small boys while her husband works late most nights as a chef-owner of a gastropub. 

Here, she reveals the exhilarating drama of working in the world's sixth busiest airport and what is required to make life-and-death decisions in the hidden no-man's-land of medicine, geopolitics, terror and tragedy that is The Heathrow Doctor.

More an autobiography than a book of interesting cases from Heathrow airport

An interesting listen. However, the vast majority of the content was present in the blurb with very few additional exciting cases. I found myself expecting a twist a few times without it being forthcoming but perhaps I expected something slightly different from the book ie a report of intriguing cases rather than the more autobiographical style this book takes.

Very Insightful Read

I love airports and I found this book fascinating, I had no idea what goes on behind the scenes. Some of the stories were amazing although one or two were pretty graphic and unpleasant! Great book and well narrated (with a few dodgy accents!)
