A Listening Doctor

Out of Stock. Delivery time unknown.


A fascinating and moving memoir by a renowned physician and pioneer of modern diabetes treatment. This account of a life's work is a compelling read and essential for anyone affected by diabetes, an illness that has reached epidemic levels across the world. Following his medical training, during which he studied under a roll call of eminent and eccentric professors, Jeremy Bending went on to work at a variety of international posts, from the vibrant and welcoming community he served in Accra during his elective period, to his isolated and close-knit charges as a GP in remote Newfoundland. It was upon returning from these travels that Jeremy's career took its decisive turn. During his time as research fellow at Guy's Hospital he was involved in the development of insulin-pump treatment, a technological advance which would revolutionise medical care for diabetes, and he has never looked back, setting up a pioneering diabetes team and centre in Eastbourne and becoming an internationally recognised authority on the subject in the process. Jeremy's humanity and erudition are on display throughout as he recounts touching incidents from his work and personal life with a warmth and sincerity that has served him well throughout his long and distinguished career as a `listening doctor' - as opposed to one who `cuts anything out or sticks anything in'. This book is littered with pertinent advice for those affected by diabetes and features many patients' stories that will help people with diabetes and their families better understand the condition.
