"One of the things that has been missing during the debate over the NHS is something that speaks to the experiences of normal folk and reminds people just what an amazing thing a public national health service really is. Like so many British people, I have used the NHS for a number of reasons throughout my life—some serious, others less so—but where would I be now without it? I honestly don’t know."

In this funny, irreverent book, Carl Walker represents the average stories of average people whose lives are routinely and often unnoticeably held together by the people who work in the NHS. These are the people who patch us up, sew us up, radiate, advise, scan, plaster, console, repair, inject, and support us, before delivering us back home to carry out our everyday affairs. A sharply observed collection of sometimes outrageous, often excruciating, but always entertaining accounts of different interactions with one of Britain’s greatest treasures. All royalties from the sale of this book will go to the NHS Support Federation.
