Through a series of events, in turn hilarious and tragic, we are drawn into the world of the GP. With a growing family, his wife’s new career as a writer and his own commitments as a family doctor, life is very hectic.
To ease the burden, he takes on a new partner – the colourful Dr Fred Perfect. With his purple taxi, his Zapata moustache and trendy clothes he cuts a dash with the patients at the practice. Fred introduces the doctor to the modern delights of pop music and fashion.
But life is not all trendy clothes and fashionable new town-houses: the doctor has some difficult professional challenges to face as well as the personal tragedy of the death of his oldest and closest friend.
Beginning with No White Coat and continuing with Love on my List, Patients of a Saint and The General Practice, this novel draws to a close the series following the trials and tribulations of a family doctor.
