Waterstones Says

By turns shocking, moving and inspirational, Marshall-Andrews' unflinching account of the struggles and challenges she encountered in her work as a GP is testament to the empathy and drive of the medical profession and the efficacy of a more holistic approach to healthcare.

Award-winning GP Dr Laura Marshall-Andrews has spent almost 30 years working in the NHS. In this urgent, powerful, and deeply personal memoir she fearlessly reveals the struggles of working in a profession that has been broken by over-regulation.

When Dr Laura Marshall-Andrews left the frontline buzz of hospital medicine for an NHS GP surgery, she was overwhelmed by the number of patients that were being let down by our healthcare system. Having witnessed the extent that box-ticking exercises were robbing her patients of their happiness, and sometimes their lives, she started to envisage a new way to care that put individuals and community at its centre.

In What Seems To Be The Problem?, Laura tells the incredible stories of the patients, doctors, artists and complementary health practitioners that have shaped her years as a GP, and the new, holistic way to care they helped her to create. From heartfelt stories of hope and healing, to the heart-breaking consequences of caring for a community in need, this is a powerful story about medicine at a time when we need it the most, and an urgent call for change.

MEDIA REVIEWS

‘Compelling and essential . . . will appeal to everyone who enjoyed Adam Kay’s This Is Going to Hurt’ Philippa Perry ‘Vital . . . the radical GP changing lives.’ The Observer ‘A wonderful and very important book which movingly describes how a GP both cared for and learned from her patients, and, as a result, opened up a new way for us to think about health and care.’ Lord Nigel Crisp, former NHS Chief Executive ‘This is the story of one brave GP’s fight with an often-soulless medical bureaucracy, to create the kind of doctor’s surgery that most of us wouldn’t dare dream of, and to champion a standard of care all our patients deserve. Adventure story, memoir, political call-to-arms, and heartfelt love letter to those she has spent her whole career looking after, WSTBTP is the most important book written by a doctor I’ve read in years.’ Gabriel Weston, surgeon and author of Direct Red: A Surgeon's Story ‘Offers fascinating insight into the day-to-day dramas of being a GP, as well as the incredible diversity of their patients’ Dr Amanda Brown, bestselling author of The Prison Doctor
