Patients Are Not Always A Virtue
An omnibus edition of Oh Dear, Doctor!, Look Out Doctor! and Surely Not, Doctor!, this volume follows the further exploits of Dr Bob Clifford in his country practice on the Somerset coast.
Small though the town of Tadchester may be, nobody could accuse it of being sleepy. Not when stream of patients flocking to the surgery include Mrs. Short with her secret addiction, the absent-minded, incontinent vicar of St Peter's, the little greengrocer for whom an operation could restore marital duties with his huge bowler- hatted wife . . . not forgetting the entire rugby team from Drake's College who develop a mysterious and embarrassing ailment after an away match at a London night club . . .
And even off-duty, life of Dr Bob is far from dull. Especially when it involves ailments at a writers' summer school, a camping holiday in France with his elderly, eccentric father-in-law and, ironically, a spell in hospital . . .
