Sick-Note Britain

How Social Problems Became Medical Issues

Adrian Massey

A Hurst Publication

  • Controversially argues that social problems have become medical issues, and doctors cannot hope to solve them.
  • Drawing on over 20 years' experience, Dr. Massey argues that our hyper-medicalized society has falsely equated sickness with illness, and sickness with unfitness to work.
  • An urgent call to reform sickness culture in Britain, offering social--not medical--solutions.
