This is Going to Hurt: Secret Diaries of a Junior Doctor Book

Shortlisted for the British Book Awards 30 from 30 Award 2020 Chosen for the Zoe Ball Book Club Waterstones Non-Fiction Book of the Month for May 2018 By degrees hilarious and painfully honest, this is a no-holds barred account of one junior doctor’s time on the frontline of the NHS. 'The humour is unflinching in its darkness… Yet I did laugh. A lot. Kay is a skilful, muscular writer… In the end, this book is a call to arms. That the NHS lost Kay is a tragedy. That this diary was written well before the Government's battle with junior doctors is more disturbing still' - Independent Welcome to 97-hour weeks. Welcome to life and death decisions. Welcome to a constant tsunami of bodily fluids. Welcome to earning less than the hospital parking meter. Wave goodbye to your friends and relationships… Welcome to the life of a junior doctor. Hilarious, horrifying and heartbreaking by turns, these diaries are everything you wanted to know - and more than a few things you didn't - about life on and off the hospital ward. And yes, it may leave a scar. Scribbled in secret after endless days, sleepless nights and missed weekends, comedian and former junior doctor Adam Kay's This is Going to Hurt provides an essential, brutally frank account of what life is like for the beleaguered vanguard of the NHS. Now providing the groundwork for a sell-out stand-up tour, This is Going to Hurt is an unmissable window into Britain’s ailing health system and the lives of the people who are its lifeblood. Simply essential reading.Read More
