Foyles Notes

A glimpse of the hectic and often harrowing world of being a Junior Doctor, told with a healthy dose of humour. How anyone survives their early years on the wards is a mystery to me, the sleep deprivation alone would destroy me. I enjoyed all the medical stuff (I’m not a squeamish soul) but what struck me most was the insight into the inner working of the NHS. For anyone who cares about this amazing institution, this book is a must-read.

Synopsis

`Painfully funny. The pain and the funniness somehow add up to something entirely good, entirely noble and entirely loveable.' - Stephen Fry 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. 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 a no-holds-barred account of his time on the NHS front line. 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.
