A Day in Your Life

24 Hours Inside the Human Body




A year in the life of the UK's best loved doctor

Whether he's talking to the Prime Minister in Downing Street, chatting with Lorraine Kelly on the GMTV sofa, or lancing a boil in his GP's practice in Basingstoke, Dr Hilary Jones is a professional doctor throughout. His sensible medical advice, often in the face of entirely unfounded media hysteria about MMR jabs or swine flu, is trusted and respected by millions of people across the UK, whether it's delivered from the television or in his surgery. If there are medical issues to be discussed in public, it's Dr Hilary who gets the call.

His day-to-day life is a hectic combination of the apparently glamorous but demanding media circus and the mundane but nonetheless rewarding realities of life as a General Practioner. Anything could happen and no two days are ever even vaguely the same. In his second book, fans of What's Up Doc? will read more of his hilarious real-life stories, which really shouldn't happen to a doctor, as well as his thoughts on the medical issues which affect all of our lives.
