Part memoir, part travelogue, Going Loco takes us on a dizzying journey around the medical world.

Picking up from where his first book, A Seaside Practice, left off, Dr Tom is back with more of his gloriously eccentric stories. Based as a locum in his beloved West Scotland, he now takes time out from the surgery for stints as a medical researcher, travelling wherever he is called, from Rio to Jerusalem, Vienna to Sydney.

Part memoir, part travelogue, Going Loco takes us on a dizzying journey around the medical world - from the challenge of a make-shift surgery in the African bush, to the terror of smuggling beagles into Amsterdam on behalf of a global pharmaceutical company. And along the way we encounter many extraordinary characters - impossibly patients, brave souls and crazy doctors. This witty doctor on the move makes great company.
