THE IMAGINARY PATIENT
29 Apr 2023
DR JULES MONTAGUE
A diagnosis is supposed to give us certainty, but what if it is subject to a doctor's bias, swayed by Big Pharma, or designed to protect the police? What happens if you or your child is refused a diagnosis for a condition the establishment will not recognise? As a consultant neurologist, Dr Jules Montague understands both the relief and the limitations of a diagnosis. She has met people who have had their lives turned upside down by a diagnosis they never deserved and turned these experiences into an eye-opening record of heartbreak and resilience. She shines a light on the troubled state of diagnosis, and asks how we might begin to heal.
Jules will be interviewed by Vybarr Cregan-Reid.
