The Sick Doctor

£18.99 Recommend


Dr Robert Smith, ageing libertine, part-time spiritualist, and senior partner at Llangandida Health Centre, is on the verge of first-time fatherhood when his partner Sandy miscarries. A fertility test confirms all’s well, but he also tests positive for prostate cancer. 


Not known for his bedside manner, Robert Smith has one eye on the budget, and another on his virility. But the prospect of prostate cancer, and the possible side effects of treatment (impotence, incontinence) send him into spirals of panic at the impending threat to his masculinity. He must find the right course of treatment, hold on to his relationship with Sandy, and rediscover a sense of self-worth as well as empathy while continuing to treat patients alongside his partners Dr Iwan James and Dr Lois Pritchard, and trainee Gus Dawkins. 

This funny, topical follow-up to The Bad Doctor and The Lady Doctor is the final book in Ian William’s highly popular trilogy about life in a general practice. 

For fans of Adam Kay, This is Going to Hurt, Michael Sparrow, Diary of a Rural GP plus Philippa Perry, Alison Bechdel
