Not Just A GP


By Tony Townsend

Paperback | English

5.0 (1 review)

More than just a memoir

I remember my friend and mentor, Pat Farry, saying more than once, ‘You might be just a country boy, but you are never just a GP.’ This book is about what GPs do and how they do it. Although written as a memoir, it champions general practice as an essential medical specialty.
This is a short book about general practice medicine written for the public. It is based on my 48 years of medical practice. I include insights into decision-making, systems thinking, pattern-recognition, and advocacy. There are also chapters on emergency care, boundary issues, bias, medical errors, death and dying and the importance of teaching and learning in medical practice.

  1. Stella

    “Not just a GP” is not just a really interesting book about GP practice and how it has evolved over the years but also covers many other issues relating to health and the health system, including referencing all the studies and statistics mentioned. And it is an autobiography, the story of the growth and development of his life and career. Tony was clearly a kind and caring doctor so the patient stories that are throughout the book are told with compassion. It is a compelling read. I loved it!
