Dr Rosemary Leonard shares more incredible stories from her career as a GP
'I'm in the wrong job,' I said to our practice nurse, 'I should definitely have been a detective.'
For BBC Breakfast's Dr Rosemary Leonard, a day in her GP's surgery is full of unexplained ailments and mysteries to be solved.
From questions of paternity to apparently drug-resistant symptoms, these mysteries can sometimes take a while to get to the bottom of, especially when they are of a more intimate nature.
In her second book about life in her London surgery, Dr Rosemary recalls some of her most puzzling cases... and their rather surprising explanations.
Dr Rosemary Leonard is one of the country's best-known doctors. She is the resident doctor on BBC Breakfast, and also writes for the Daily Express and S magazine, and is the medical editor for both Woman and Home and Tesco Healthy Living.
Although she is a regular broadcaster, Rosemary is still very much a practising doctor, working as a part-time GP partner in a busy South London surgery, where she has a special interest in women's health. She trained in medicine at Cambridge University and St Thomas Hospital Medical School. She has been the GP representative on the Committee on Safety of Medicines, is now a member of the Human Genetics Commission and also on the Board of the Health Protection Agency. In 2004 Rosemary was awarded an MBE for her services to healthcare.
Rosemary lives with her husband and two sons and enjoys gardening, skiing, hiking and sailing. This is her second book.
