Into his second year of medicine, Max is out of the wards and onto the streets, working for the Phoenix Outreach Project. Fuelled by tea and more enthusiasm than experience, he attempts to treat a wide and colourful range of patients that somehow his first year on the wards didn't prepare him for - from Molly the 80-year-old drugs mule and God in a Tesco car park, to middle-class mums addicted to appearances and pain killers in equal measure. Funny, touching, uplifting and wise, Max goes from innocence to experience via dustbin-shopping-trips without ever losing his humanity.
