View from the Surgery


Loveable old curmudgeon Dr Moody is a general practitioner in the beautiful Scottish Borders, who writes of his experiences in a regular column in local newspapers. Now, for the first time, he has kindly agreed for his friend and confidant David Carvel to select and assemble the best of these articles for a wider readership. This volume contains a greater mixture of anecdotes and medical cases than adispensary full of pills. It is hoped that they do not leave the reader feeling light-headed, nauseated or having an urgent need to visit the lavatory. Rather, they may be just thetonic you need. Like medication, it is suggested that these vignettes are not consumed in one go; instead it is respectfully advised that the reader returns at specified intervals for measured and theraputic doses.

The second volume of his medical memoirs and musings, Reality GP, was published in March 2010.

Dr Ken B Moody

Dr Ken B Moody was rather too self-effacing to submit details for the purposes of a biography. We can glean from his writings though that he is a reasonably hard-working GP, a decent fellow and an above average wit.

He is no spring chicken and cannot be far from retirement (though the government thinks otherwise!) He was once quoted as saying that he will continue working and writing until the letters of complaint outnumber the Thank You cards. We can only hope this is not soon if these witty memoirs are anything to go by.

The first few chapters were composed many years ago!

A rare glimpse of Dr Moody at work.
