Max Pemberton is a doctor, journalist and writer. He is based in London and works in mental health.
He is a columnist for The Daily Telegraph, writing weekly on news events concerning culture, social and ethical issues, the politics of health care and the NHS. He is also a columnist for Reader’s Digest and a regular contributor to the Mail On Sunday.
He has also written three books. His first, Trust Me I’m A (junior) Doctor was serialised on Radio 4 Book of the Week and charted his first year of life as a doctor on the NHS wards. His second book, Where Does It Hurt? details his experiences of working in an outreach project for the homeless and people addicted to drugs. It tells the stories of the people he met and his own journey as he tries to discover if one person can make a difference and if people really can change. His latest book, The Doctor Will See You Now, is based back in hospital and is focused on Max's time working in dementia and care of the elderly.
