What Seems To Be The Problem?
Award-winning GP Dr Laura Marshall-Andrews has spent almost 30 years working in the NHS. In this urgent, powerful, and deeply personal memoir she fearlessly reveals the struggles of working in a profession that has been broken by over-regulation. When Dr Laura Marshall-Andrews left the frontline buzz of hospital medicine for an NHS GP surgery, she was overwhelmed by the number of patients that were being let down by our healthcare system. Having witnessed the extent that box-ticking exercises were robbing her patients of their happiness, and sometimes their lives, she started to envisage a new way to care that put individuals and community at its centre. In What Seems To Be The Problem?, Laura tells the incredible stories of the patients, doctors, artists and complementary health practitioners that have shaped her years as a GP, and the new, holistic way to care they helped her to create. From heartfelt stories of hope and healing, to the heart-breaking consequences of caring for a community in need, this is a powerful story about medicine at a time when we need it the most, and an urgent call for change.
