Summary

Author of the bestselling A Seaside Practice...Picking up from where his first memoir left off, Dr Tom is back with more of his gloriously eccentric stories. Still based as a locum in his beloved Scottish highlands, he now takes time out from the surgery for stints as a medical researcher, travelling wherever he is called, from Rio to Jerusalem, Vienna to Singapore. Part memoir, part travelogue, Going Loco takes us on a dizzying journey around the medical world -- from the challenge of a make-shift surgery in the African bush, to the terror of smuggling beagles into Amsterdam on behalf of a global pharmaceutical company. We encounter extraordinary characters on the way -- impossible patients, brave souls and more than a smattering of crazy doctors. Going Loco is a gripping read, full of the colour and charm of Dr Tom's previous book -- this young doctor on the move is great company.
