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 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 fake 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
What we think:
Who would believe being a GP could be so varied, Take Ethel and her hubby retired vicar Lionel, and a rectal examination... GP, I need to put a digit up your back passage Ethel, You what I cannot hear you. 'I'm going to have to put a finger up your bottom, (really loud).It was only behind a set of curtains so everyone in A&E were now aware.You have to read the book to get what happened next but hilarious uit is.
It is a fun and interesting title well worth a read, and if like me you will be unable not to draw comparisons with real life characters you know yourself.... Real Life At The Surgery Joclyn Manners FemaleFirst book critic
