For more than three decades, John Quin worked as a physician for the NHS in both Scotland and England, specialising in endocrinology. He was told the subject was easy because “hormones — well, they just go up and down”. This, it turned out, was something of an over-simplification.
In this memoir, Dr Quin recounts tales of the joy and reward of getting the diagnosis right and the disaster of getting it wrong; it is both an acute insight into the frustrations and tensions of working in a underfunded system and a timely reminder of the humanity of the NHS staff who care for us.
