100 hour weeks, no breaks and absolutely no room for sick days, Adam Kay highlights the struggles of NHS doctors in a first-hand diary account of his daily life: ‘This Is Going To Hurt’.
Kay, a British comedy writer who trained and worked as an NHS doctor from 2004 until 2010 felt a sense of duty to enlighten people on the gruelling day-to-day life himself and many others working in healthcare continue to experience. A complicated mix of joy, pain and sacrifice allows this book to grip you from the very first page in order to find some sense of order in Kay’s chaotic world. Tread carefully if you’re feeling squeamish or find the details of a maternity ward too much to bear.
A tremendous addition to your bookshelf – you won’t regret it!
