Iona Heath is the current President of the UK Royal College of General Practitioners. For many years she has been thinking and writing about what GPs do, and what they need to do, for their patients. This very short book can be read in a few hours, and might challenge your ideas about the role of the GP, health and illness. Or it might put into words thoughts that you have had before but not been able to explain. Either way, your time reading it will be very well spent.
