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 Britain’s greatest treasures.
