Synopsis

This is the popular best-seller in a revised and updated new edition. The world is full of TV doctors, but only Dr Phil has appeared on "Have I Got News For You" seven times and "Coutdown" nineteen times, a true mark of greatness (whatever Lord Winston says). He is also Private Eye's medical correspondent and possibly the only comic to have appeared at a Public Inquiry. Dr Phil (46, Capricorn) has worked in the NHS for twenty years but only used it twice. He takes no drugs (apart from Australian Shiraz) and has never knowingly been Rolfed. So how does he remain so healthy? And what sort of Doctor is he? Here, at last, are transcripts of his most life-enhancing consultations and comedy, including 89 Minutes to Save the NHS.
