"The Other Side of Medicine" is an amusing and challenging reflection of changes and fashions in general practice. Covering various themes including humanity in medicine, communication, and quality assessment of doctors, Peter Tate offers an abundance of personal anecdotes and patient perspectives. Doctors, particularly general practitioners, their trainers and examiners, and medical students will find this romp through a half century of medical life invigorating and invaluable. "This book is a collection of articles and short stories covering a medical career. Some are iconoclastic, the theme of good communication in medicine runs throughout, other themes are quality in doctors and the assessment of that quality but I hope the main strand of the book is humanity in medicine and my attempts at understanding what that is." - Peter Tate, in the Preface.
