Picked Up, Patched Up and Sent Home: Why I Love the NHS

by Carl Walker - £9.99  Robert Hale Ltd (NAG Press) (2015)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780719814433 | ISBN 10: 071981443x

In this personal, irreverent book, Carl Walker represents the average stories of average people whose lives are routinely and often unnoticeably held together by the people who work in the NHS. These are the people who patch us up, sew us up, radiate, advise scan, plaster, console, repair, inject and support us, before delivering us back home to carry out our everyday affairs.
 
A sharply observed collection of sometimes outrageous, often excruciating but always entertaining accounts of different interactions with one of Britainís greatest treasures.
