The tranquillity of a Rural Backwater - SHATTERED! The ancient arts of Medicine - EXPOSED! Her darling cleft-chinned Doctor - FORCED TO FIGHT FOR HIS LIFE! It was a time for wiping. A time for bandaging. Of patients and their incessant needs. In a world where nurses never wash their hands, and doctors are the lowest of the low, one enormous nurse stands up for LOVE - a nurse that will make you fart with fear! Doctors & Nurses is the medical romance to end all. With her characteristic with and vitriol, Lucy Ellmann brilliantly anatomises our devotion to Hippocratic oafs.
