34 Patients

The profound and uplifting memoir about the patients who changed one doctor's life




A profoundly moving portrait of health, hope and humanity in the NHS, told with vivid compassion through one doctor's 34 most memorable cases

We ask so much of our doctors.
To heal. To trust. To care. To listen.
To tell a man he'll die tomorrow. To help a man who doesn't want to live.
To look into a parent's panicked eyes as their daughter fights for breath.
To watch a 103-year-old woman slip away.

Doctors know our deepest secrets, our private worries and our most vulnerable moments. In this breathtaking memoir of patients he has helped, lost, and those who have changed him forever, Dr Tom Templeton weaves a profound and moving portrait of humanity, asking us to treat all with compassion.
