Description

EVER wondered what your doctor really thinks about you? Or why you can’t get an appointment? Or what that funny buzzing noise in your ear is?
Sick Notes – the real-life story of life in a doctor’s surgery – may help with some answers…
 
 
'We wanted to thank you for all you did for mum over the last 14 years,' said Mrs Cobham.
Excitedly, I peered into the plastic bag. Inside was one small loaf of sliced bread.
'Er...' I stammered. 'Well, that's lovely.'
She nodded and smiled. 'It was the least we could do, doctor,' she said.

Welcome to the bizarre world of Tony Copperfield, family doctor.
He spends his days fending off anxious mums, elderly sex maniacs and hopeless hypochondriacs.
The rest of his time is taken up sparring with colleagues, battling bureaucrats and banging his head against the brick wall of the NHS.

If you've ever wondered what your GP is really thinking - and what's going on behind the scenes at your surgery - SICK NOTES is for you.

'A wonderful book, funny and insightful in equal measure.' Dr Phil Hammond (Private Eye’s ‘MD’).

'Copperfield is simply fantastic, unbelievably funny and improbably wise... everything he writes is truer than fact.' British Medical Journal.

'Original, funny and an incredible read.' The Sun

'A mix of the hilarious, the mundane and the poignant. Dr Copperfield reveals what goes on behind those surgery doors.' The Daily Mail

    Very humorous . Authors are self deprecating honest and really really funny . It's so good to finally read a book about medicine that I didn't fall asleep through !
  • Humorous?

    Bit self indulgent and repetitive. Humour revolves around bagging the bureaucracy of the English NHS. Might be funnier if you have to put up with the system.
  • excellent insight

    "Loved this book! It had me laughing out loud at every other turn. Oh, how the joys of general medicine can never be underestimated. The guide to acronyms is well worth reading the book for alone!"
