Dr Kate Granger, a 30-year-old Wakefield doctor, has been diagnosed with a terminal form of sarcoma. Despite the diagnosis, she has returned to work at Pinderfields Hospital, Yorkshire.

'I am still a practising clinician despite everything,' she said. Dr Granger said her book, The Other Side, 'gives a valuable insight into looking after medically trained patients' and helps doctors see patients' point of view.

Proceeds from the book go to the Yorkshire Cancer Centre. Visit theothersidestory.co.uk for details.
