Dr Crippen is a fairly high-emotive doctor. This is good for most of his patients and bad for a few. It is not good for him. Two of my partners are low-emotive doctors. Don’t get me wrong. They are excellent doctors. I would happily see them if I were ill. But they are more dispassionate than I. They do not get involved as much.
At the end of the road
Dr. Crippen describes how it sometimes feels to be a doctor. In any system, not only in NHS: What shall we do with grandad?
