Ed Patrick - Catch Your Breath

Ed Patrick - Catch Your Breath

A gut punch of a memoir by a doctor – and comedian – whose job is to keep people alive by putting them to sleep. Strong drugs for his patients, strong coffee for him. But it’s not just sleep-giving for this anaesthetist, as he navigates emergencies, patients not breathing for themselves and living with a terrifying sense of responsibility.

It’s enough to leave anyone feeling numb. But don’t worry, there’s plenty of laughing gas to be had. Ed Patrick is an anaesthetist and comedian. He has performed across the UK, including at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and hosts the Comedian’s Surgery podcast in which he speaks to guests about their health experiences.

Ed Patrick will be in conversation with retired GP Dr Helen Thomas.
