Description:
Adam Kay was a junior doctor from 2004 until 2010, before a devastating experience on a ward caused him to reconsider his future. He kept a diary throughout his training, and 'This Is Going to Hurt' intersperses tales from the front line of the NHS with reflections on the current crisis. The result is a first-hand account of life as a junior doctor in all its joy, pain, sacrifice and maddening bureaucracy, and a love letter to those who might at any moment be holding our lives in their hands.

This book is a hilarious and heartbreaking look behind the curtain of a junior doctor working for the NHS. Written with just the right amount of humour, sarcasm and heartache which allows the reader to experience the highs, lows and sometimes unsavoury parts of being a doctor. It is a real eye opener to the treatment of our doctors, and other members of the NHS - it touches on important points that we should all take some time to think about, and encourages us to become more active to protect our NHS, a a vital service that everyone uses.
