Editorial Reviews

Review

'This book takes the conversations we’re all having about the NHS and goes the next step. Reading it is like being at a really good dinner party.'

'A brilliant device – mixing fiction and fact – this book really works.'

'It made me laugh, cry and think, so it did what it’s supposed to.'

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
Dr. Petit-Zeman's extraordinary book is an unusual blend of fact and fiction that captures the recent history of the UK National Health Service better than anything else that I have read.

The last chapter alone, describing her Kafka-esque experience in one health trust, is worth buying the book for....

an insider-outsider-prophet's perspective on healthcare systems.
