Doctor Bob lives in Tadchester on the Somerset coast. It's a good little town, but like all English country towns it has its fair share of interesting cases . . . To start with, there's young Mr Haggard who has a thing about doctors. Then there's Mr Wood, the amorous but underdeveloped photographer with a crush on Amazing Grace the receptionist . . . not forgetting Mrs Short with her secret addiction; Charlie Sloper, the local poacher and supermarket shoplifter; the accident-prone Aubrey Cattermole; and last but not least, the rugby team from Drake's College who develop a mysterious and embarrassing ailment after an away match at a London night club.And the strangest thing about these cases is, they're all true!

Oh Dear, Doctor!

Oh Dear, Doctor! is the fourth in the series of Dr Clifford's richly entertaining and true-life accounts of his experiences as a G.P. in a small West Country practice. Once again the inhabitants of Tadchester and Sanford prove that patients are not necessarily a virtue. Like Ralph, the tiny greengrocer, only too aware that an operation might restore marital duties with his huge bowler-hatted wife; the commander's wife who was literally a knock-out; and the dubious joys of being a school medical officer. Even off duty, things don't go too smoothly - there are trials and tribulations of taking his elderly and eccentric father-in-law on a camping holiday through France . . . and the writer's summer school where Dr Clifford ends up holding endless surgeries. Doctor, family man, humourist, philosopher and counsellor, Dr Robert Clifford takes us through his busy life, sharing his patients' problems and joys, tragedies and courage.

What Next Doctor? is the third book in the hilarious Dr Clifford Chronicles, true-life experiences as G.P. in a West Country practice. This instalment commences when Dr Clifford and his bride wake up to a bizarre confrontation on the first day of their honeymoon - and promptly prescribe themselves champagne as a cure! The patients passing through his life are by turns comic and courageous, lovable and tragic. There's the long-married couple whose recipe for happiness is a row twice a week; the accident- prone ex- miner whose collection of injuries and ailments makes him a medical curiosity; and the elderly couple who turn out to be mother and son - the son is eighty-one! Dr Clifford presents us with an immensely entertaining slice of life- the tragedies and triumphs of ordinary people caught up in the human drama of survival in a world of sickness and ill health. And he tells his tale with all warmth and humour that makes his books a real delight to read.
