Prose: non-fiction, Health & personal development

This book might just save your life.

The NHS is our most treasured institution, but even caring doctors have too many patients and too little time, while patients often feel too overwhelmed, embarrassed, intimidated or ill to ask the right questions. Your chances of getting the best care that's right for you are greatly improved if you are able to share in decisions about your treatment.

In STAYING ALIVE, Dr Phil Hammond, a GP and campaigner with unrivaled sympathy for patients' needs, helps give you the confidence and the tools to take control of your health care, and shows you in a friendly but authoritative way how to navigate the system. This book will show you how to get your GP to listen to you and take your symptoms seriously, how to get hold of your patient records so you can ensure they're correct, how to get a second opinion and, most importantly, how to get better.
