More hilarous stories of life as a rural doctor in Devon and Cornwall.
Dr Sparrow is back, coping with more bizarre, macabre and hilarious situations. Following his successful debut with Country Doctor: Hilarious True Stories from a Country Practice, Dr Sparrow once more guides us through the daily rounds of the weird and wonderful in his practice on the Devon/Cornwall border.
What would you do if faced with the unsuccessful resuscitation of the wrong patient, being held at gunpoint as a suspected terrorist or confronting a blind man who refuses to stop driving? And what about the little old lady who presents you with a supermarket bag stuffed with 20 notes? Add to this jets crashing on the runway, fleeting glimpses of the Royal Genitalia and the haunting tale of the suicidal stranger and an abducted child - and you will start to have some idea of the unpredictable life of Dr Sparrow.
Dr Michael Sparrow, now happily settled on the Devon/Cornwall border, has charted an unconventional course from the immaturity and uncertainty of life as a medical student, through hospital jobs and a six year spell in the Royal Air Force, to the immaturity and uncertainty of life as a rural GP. Aged somewhere between qualification and retirement, he is delighted to have finally left the bottom rung of his career.
