Hello, my name is Ben MacFarlane.
At the moment I work full-time in a busy London hospital – but in the past I’ve worked in hospitals and medical centres all around the world.
Over the years my colleagues and I have looked after some extraordinary patients – including a lovely old lady who mistakenly took ecstasy rather than aspirin on a cruise, a teenage boy who fell off a hotel balcony trying to look in a bar maid’s window, a model whose boob job went badly wrong in Brazil, a family who fell off the back of a ski mobile visiting Santa in Lapland – the list could go on and on!
I’ve recently had the chance to explain how dramatic and exciting a travelling doctor’s life can be in two books: Holiday SOS: The Lifesaving Adventures of a Travelling Doctor and now Cruise Ship SOS: The Lifesaving Adventures of a Doctor at Sea. They’ve both had great reviews and I’ve already got plenty of ideas and experiences for a third instalment.
It would be great if you clicked on the links above and bought a copy. If you enjoy reading them it would be fantastic if you told your friends and fellow holidaymakers about them as well.
In the meantime, thanks for coming to my website - and I hope all your holidays are safe, memorable and exciting!
