'Packed with tales of derring-do ... a riveting read' INDEPENDENT

Who are you going to call if it all goes wrong on holiday?

Meet Doctor Ben MacFarlane. His job is to bring people back to Britain after holiday disasters, gap year crises, embarrassing incidents on business trips and all the other things that can go wrong when we head off overseas. Holiday SOS is his story - a year in the life of a very British flying doctor.

Follow Ben as he grabs his medical bag and flies to glamorous locations - helping to pick up the pieces after another holiday emergency. Dramatic, hilarious or wildly unexpected, for flying doctors, emergency medicine doesn't just take place in intensive care wards - it can happen just across the aisle on your next flight.

About the Author

Ben MacFarlane graduated in medicine from Imperial College, London in 1998 and started carrying out medical repatriations in the spring of 2001. He then spent a year working on the cruise ship circuit and now works full time in a West London teaching hospital.

Ben's first book with Hodder was Holiday SOS, which tells of a year in his life when he jetted around the world as a repatriation doctor. The sequel, Cruise Ship SOS, follows Ben's travels as a doctor on cruise ships.
