Welcome to the life of a junior doctor: 97-hour weeks, life and death decisions, a constant tsunami of bodily fluids, and the hospital parking meter earns more than you. Scribbled in secret after endless days, sleepless nights and missed weekends, Adam Kay's This is Going to Hurt provides a no-holds-barred account of his time on the NHS front line. Hilarious, horrifying and heartbreaking, this diary is everything you wanted to know - and more than a few things you didn't - about life on and off the hospital ward.

Incredibly funny, pulls on the heart strings and has a fantastic message to help doctors, nurses, midwives and all other medical employees. If you don't want to listen for the Adam Kay, listen for the more than 1 million employees of the NHS and see the truth behind the lies.
