What happens to patients when it all goes wrong at sea?
Say hello to Dr Ben MacFarlane. After spending a year as a repatriation doctor, he's now sailing off around the world as a ship's doctor - and with 3,000 passengers and crew to look after he's in for the most exciting trip of his life.
So join Ben and his colleagues and find out why ship's doctors think bar stools should carry health warnings, why the casino can be safer than the sick bay in a storm and why no amount of sharks, pirates or tidal waves will ever be as dangerous as the midnight buffet. With all the drama and excitement of popular medical dramas like Holby City and Casualty, these incredible true stories are told with warmth and humour.
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.
