Jiblets and Tripe With Dr Slop

Peter McDonald

Peter McDonald published the novel ‘A Trust in Conflict’ (1999) under the name Dr Slop and ‘The Oxford Dictionary of Medical Quotations’ in 2003 (OUP) under his real name. He has written a travel book about a long distance journey on horseback ‘A Ride in Middle England’ (2006).

He presented five half hour TV documentary films on the same subject which were screened regularly on Sky Channel 280 (Horse and Country TV). Several performances on Radio 4 include ‘Quote / Unquote’,  ‘Inspirations’ and ‘Word of Mouth’. He has worked for Queensland Radio (ABC) (1988) and made some ‘odd’ appearances on Sky TV and BBC2. He lives on the SW Herts/Bucks border.

Peter McDonald | A Trust In Conflict: He is a fiddler (traditional folk), a professional after-dinner speaker. He has one wife, twenty animals including horses, dogs, cats, ducks, chickens but only four children. He has delivered over 130 after dinner speeches to corporate dinners, clubs and medical audiences all over the UK and Europe.  His theme of “Jiblets and Tripe!” gives his audience an amusing insight into the serious and not-so-serious side of his life as a surgeon in today’s NHS.
