Publisher's Summary

The two best-selling memoirs (London Call-Out and Doctor in the House) from London GP Alex Rudd, brought together in one hilarious and touching set.

A man who has injured himself trying out his girlfriend's waxing treatment. The inimitable curiosity of a boy whose cactus has left his hand in a mess. More Googled self-diagnoses than one can count. These are the cases that Rudd faces daily. As hilarious as they are poignant, the memoirs showcase some of the most baffling as well as heartbreaking stories that any doctor and their patients have had to experience. 

Alex Rudd is a GP who now works as a locum in a variety of surgeries in London and the rest of the country. His name has been changed to protect the identity of his patients and colleagues.

Returned after 3 chapters

I returned this book almost immediately as if I had listened any more to the narrator I would have been totally depressed. Monotonous is an understatement. The story in the book was probably quite listenable to if it had been read by someone with more than a monotone voice. Disappointed.

Loved it

It was really good- loved it. The only thing is it was a lot shorter than I was expecting- felt like it was kinda crammed together.
