Peter McDonald is a full-bodied surgeon but writes (as “Dr Slop” – a novel and author of the “Oxford Dictionary of Medical Quotations”) and broadcasts (Radio 4) regularly.
He generally themes his presentation as JIBLETS AND TRIPE – the lighter side of being a surgeon!
Being a bowel surgeon he has a well developed sense of humour that gives his audience a glimpse into both the lighter and, occasionally, more serious side of being a consultant surgeon.
Areas of Expertise
He has delivered his very funny talk to over one hundred Rotary Conferences, Medical Societies and Corporate dinners over the last decade. He never fails to get his audience laughing as well as giving them an insight into the work of a surgeon working in the NHS.
In thirty minutes of witty anecdotes and stories Peter will confirm that humour is the best medicine and that Voltaire was right when he wrote that “the purpose of medicine is to amuse while nature takes its course”!
“We gave him the pre-luncheon spot and though that this might allow our fourteen hundred audience drift out in a staggered fashion but instead they stayed in their seats to the end of his hysterically funny talk and so lunch was chaos!”
Organiser of Rotary Conference 2003, Eastbourne
“His witty insights into the world inhabited by his patients and the NHS politicians made me cry with laughter. I just hope I never meet him in hospital or I’ll burst all my stitches!”
Chairman Fernie Supporters Club Annual Dinner 2005
“You entertained us with your natural wit and clever delivery and I have had some wonderful feedback and compliments on the evening!”
Rowan Eldred, Hon. Sec. The Buckinghamshire Farmer’s Club, February 2007
“I think his “Let’s do an appendicectomy together!” and the “Mister/Master/Doctor story” were the funniest things I have ever heard!”
