Like so many people, Carl Walker has used the NHS for a number of reasons throughout his life - some serious, others less so. From being caught red-handed testing a stethoscope on himself, and (unsuccessfully) attempting to remove a friend's ingrown toenail with a pair of pliers, to the health visitor who offers guidance that soothes Carl's newborn and restores sanity to his household, the specialists who help him manage his epilepsy, and the GP who assures him the worrying lump is not cancer, here are stories that speak to the experiences of normal folk, and remind us just what an amazing thing a public national health service really is.
