Initially in awe of this figure of authority, I had absolute faith that now he was here, my father would be all right. After all, that was my only experience - if you were ill, you saw the doctor, and he solved the problem. The fact that my father was on his feet within days after the doctor's visit only cemented that belief. Before he left, the GP handed me the used needle and syringe - unthinkable in the health-and-safety conscious age we live in today - and my career path was assured. For years, I kept the needle carefully sheathed in an old sherry cork, bringing it out to inject my teddy bear with Ribena. The needle has long since gone, but the bear remains, bearing witness to my amateur The WELCOME VisitorIn 2010 Dr Sarah Jarvis and the broadcaster John Humphrys published a book called The Welcome Visitor (Hodder & Stoughton). It had taken them over five years to write, and involved countless hours of sometimes heated debate around John's kitchen table. The subject of their passion, Death. Using extracts from the book, Sarah explains how it all started. Sarah's story I announced that I wanted to be a GP at the age of eight. I still remember the day - my father was ill in bed (an almost unknown occurrence) and the doctor came to our house. My mother fussed round the important visitor, keeping me out of his way - but I couldn't resist peeking round the bedroom door to watch him at work. Out of the Aladdin's cave that was his Gladstone bag came all manner of instruments - stethoscope, blood pressure monitor, ophthalmoscope - and finally, to my enormous excitement, a needle and syringe with which he proceeded to give my father an injection. The doctor spotted me and called me in, taking me through the tools of The GP handed me the used needle and syringe - unthinkable in the health-and-safety conscious age we live in today - and my career path was assuredTV doctor Sarah Jarvis reveals through extracts from her book how her father's death was the unexpected inspiration that led her to become a GP
