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.

Love it!

I would never suspect that some airports have doctors on site and this was nice discovery as whole story is amazing and worth to learn.
If you have any interest / experience in aviation and airport operations you will love it! Very interesting and good read. I really enjoyed whole book!!
Sometimes illness example may seem pretty simple but whole story is really good. Amazing book, really nice to listen.
If you don’t know much about aviation you will definitely find this book very informative and intriguing sometimes.

Disappointing

Rather poor. the anecdotes were unexpectedly flat and sounded exagerated. One section in particular I found annoying was the writer's opinions on older British men bringing younger Thai brides into the UK. She said how sorry she felt for these girls marrying a middle-aged British man. What has this to do with being a doctor at Heathrow airport? Nothing. It's just a middle-aged woman expressing her predjudices. Also, the narrator was wrong. She didn't sound like a doctor.
