Flight Risk: The Highs and Lows of Life as a Doctor at Heathrow Airport [9781472256942]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

An exhilarating insight into the life of a doctor at Heathrow Airport, where the truth is often stranger than fiction.

For over a decade, Stephanie Green was a doctor on-call for one of the world's busiest airports, confronting dramatic, bizarre and sometimes heart-breaking situations. During her 24-hour shifts at Heathrow, Dr Green had to be ready for anything: from finding an abandoned suitcase leaking blood onto the carousel, to discovering a man smuggling heroin in a corset.

It's a job that brought her into contact with all walks of life; her patients included drug mules and fugitives, schizophrenics and stowaways, refugees and tourists. And with the threats of a nerve agent poisoning or a Level Four viral epidemic always in the back of her mind, Dr Green found herself on the frontline where the decisions are made about who - or what - was allowed to leave the airport's borders.

FLIGHT RISK reveals the thrilling drama that takes place behind-the-scenes of an airport and what is needed to make critical decisions in this hidden no-man's land of geopolitics, terror, tragedy and medicine.

AUTHOR: Dr. Stephanie Green holds an MA in Biological Anthropology from Downing College, Cambridge, and a BM (Bachelor of Medicine) from Southampton University. She initially specialised in psychiatry, before working at London's Heathrow Airport for more than a decade. She now runs her own consultancy business, and her various roles include Consulting Doctor for Marie Stopes International and Medical Member of the Independent Family Returns Panel for the Home Office. Dr Green lives with her husband, Chris, their two sons, and Reggie the Flat-Coated Retriever, in Monmouthshire, U.K.
